Hi Clara,

 

There are a couple of ways of tackling this.

 

Option 1:

 

If this is raw statistics you are referring to, then the most straightforward option, in my view, is to find the ‘original’ source and reference that ‘original’ source – both in-text and in the reference list.

 

 

Option 2:

 

The other option looks something like this:

 

(Author, as cited in Author, Year)

 

(Australian Institute of Health & Wellbeing, as cited in Department of Health, 2018)

 

If you opt for this option, you should include the Department of Health in your reference list, but not the Australian Institute of Health & Wellbeing as the original source wasn’t consulted.

 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Hossain
