In my field secondary data were compiled by somebody else. So if survey data are not secondary, you must have carried out the survey yourself....

I just want to ask if MI is suitable only for primary data

I have read a few papers on MI and they keep talking about it used for missings in survey data.

Is it suitable for this method (MI) to be used in handling missing data in secondary data?

What is secondary data? This kind of terminology is usually incredibly
specific to one (sub-(sub-(sub-)))discipline, and the same thing is
often known under (a) completely different name(s) in other
disciplines.
