National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a data collection system of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) designed to address a wide range of education-related issues. It is a telephone survey of the noninstitutionalized civilian population. The 1991 NHES included two topical components: Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Adult Education (AE). The ECE component includes all children aged 3 to 8 years of age (as of December 31, 1990) and all 9-year-old children enrolled in first and second grade. For the AE component, interviews were conducted with persons who were 16 years of age and older in December 1990, and who were not enrolled in elementary or secondary school. Adults identified as adult education participants were sampled at a higher rate than adult education nonparticipants. Approximately 60,000 households were screened to identify eligible respondents. For the ECE, 13,892 interviews were completed, and for the AE, 12,568 interviews were completed. This document contains the interviewer texts of: (1) the NHES:91 screener interview, with its subsets of ECE, AE, and household characteristics items; (2) the NHES:91 ECE interview; and (3) the NHES:91 AE interview.
