Secondary Analysis

Secondary analysis is study and analysis that is taken from primary sources. This is done by reviewing and studying other people's work and conclusions and then drawing new conclusions or determining new uses from that research. This is essentially the procedure that is used by college students when preparing research papers. So primary analysis is a researcher conducting their own study and writing up the results while secondary analysis would be a study using that primary source as a resource for their own work.
