This manual provides documentation and guidance for users of the public release data file for the School Safety and Discipline component of the 1993 National Household Education Survey (NHES:93). Information about the purpose of the study, the data collection instruments, the sample design, and data collection and processing is presented. The NHES:93 was a random digit dial telephone survey of households developed by the National Center for Education Statistics and conducted by Westat, Inc. For the safety and discipline component, interviews were conducted with 12,680 parents of students in grades 3 through 12 and with 6,504 students in grades 6 through 12. The NHES:93 addressed readiness for school and safety and discipline in school through questions about the school environment. Chapter 1 introduces the survey, while chapter 2 describes the survey instrument. Sample design and implementation are in chapter 3, and chapter 4 considers data collection and response rate. Data preparation is described in chapter 5, and use of the file and codebook are explained in chapter 6. Data anomalies are described in chapter 7. Five appendixes provide the instruments, a list of variables, a guide to files and codes, and the codebook. Eleven tables and three figures illustrate the manual. (SLD)
