Answer to Question #28789 in Other Economics for cathy anderson
explain two issues that may arise if there are differences between primary and secondary sources."
In case of differences between primary and secondary education the issue on inaccurate data may arise, because margins of error or standard deviation from the original research may not be published in secondary sources. Without this information, statistics can be misleading. Also another problem with secondary research is understanding definitions in the primary research. The information gleaned from original research is only useful with an accurate definition of the terms and exactly what is encompassed by each statistic or piece of data.
