Data discovery & re-use

Many research projects require secondary data in order to address a proposed research problem, hypothesis or set of objectives.

In addition, the quantity of data, their qualities and how they are sampled and measured, has implications for the choice and effectiveness of the data analysis techniques used in subsequent analysis. Therefore, it is important that you use the correct data for your research.
