National Household Education Survey. An Overview.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a data collection system of the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) that is designed to address a wide range of education-related issues through telephone surveys. It provides descriptive data on the educational activities of the U.S. population and offers a variety of educational statistics. This brochure describes the studies the NHES has conducted since it began in 1991. NHES:1991 addressed early childhood education and adult education, screening about 60,000 households and interviewing about 14,000 parents. NHES:93 focused on school readiness with interviews with about 11,000 parents and school safety and discipline through interviews with about 12,700 parents. The topical components for NHES:95 were the same as those of 1991, with more than 45,000 households screened. In 1996, the NHES will concentrate on parent and family involvement in education and adult and youth civic involvement. A new design feature for 1996 will be the collection of demographic and educational information on members of all households rather than just those households potentially eligible for a topical component. It is expected that 59,000 or more households will be screened in future NHES studies. (SLD)
