"Using Source B and your wider sociological knowledge, assess the usefulness of analysing quantitative secondary sources of data in studying social inequalities in mobile phone use"
Source B is about a study into the 'digital divide', so the use of mobile phones by each generation.
I just don't know where to start, TIA!
Then for each para write a strength or advantage of quantitative secondary sources - so that would be official statistics right?
And use the PEELE (evaluation at the end of a paragraph) and keep linking to the theoretical perspective
Sorry I don’t know how you would link it as I don’t do that topic but if your saying one of the advantages of using secondary sources is that it’s representative because it’s already been collected in a large amount say why this would be useful in studying social inequalities- so they can apply it to the wider population more effectively and therefore it’s an accurate representation and is generalisable
