Why is primary data not secondary data and secondary data not primary data?

Hey Arka,
Primary data is not a secondary data as primary data is the data that is collected by an investigator himself to carry out a specific research. Such data is collected by the investigator from the original source of information. It gives the investigator a first hand information relating to his study. On the other hand, secondary data is not a primary data as secondary data is the data that is collected from secondary sources. Such data have already been collected by somebody in the past and are collected and modified by the researcher as per the objectives of the study.
