Webinar: Dissertation projects: Introduction to secondary analysis for qualitative and quantitative data

26 May 2020
Online, 11.30 - 12.30 BST

Secondary analysis is a great way to get experience working with data without having to go into the field.

This free webinar, organised by the UK Data Service, will take you through the research process of a secondary analysis project, which includes an overview of the methodological, ethical, and procedural issues.

If you are a postgraduate looking for a project to do this summer that doesn’t involve face-to-face contact, or an undergraduate student trying to evaluate options for next year’s dissertation, this webinar will give you options to ensure you get valuable research experience during your degree.

This is an introductory webinar which assumes no prior experience of using archived data.

Presenter: Maureen Haaker

Recordings of UK Data Service webinars are made available on our YouTube channel and, together with the slides, on our past events pages soon after the webinar has taken place.
