Abstract

Until recently, researchers have been reticent to use secondary data to generate grounded theory. Secondary data (also known as retrospective data) is data collected by other researchers and used in a separate research project to understand the phenomena under question.

This presentation outlines the use of a secondary data set to inform the development of a grounded theory. Collected by researchers in a multi-site study in Papua New Guinea (PNG), the data set (qualitative and quantitative data) was theoretically sampled to explore the implications for women of male circumcision for HIV prevention. Researchers used chunks of data from the secondary data set to stimulate discussion in new focus groups and to generate new knowledge about the phenomena. The weaving of understandings from secondary and primary data has informed a grounded theory to inform HIV prevention policy and health promotion strategies in PNG.
