The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics. The NHES uses random digit dial sampling and computer-assisted telephone interviewing to conduct studies on important educational issues. The information sought through the NHES is the sort that is best answered by household members rather than representatives of educational institutions. This disk (CD-ROM) contains a number of NHES components. For 1991, data files for the Adult Education survey provide information about a broad range of adult education activities by people 16 years of age and older. Data files for the Early Childhood Education component of the NHES also conducted in 1991 provide information on child care, early childhood education programs, early school experiences, and home activities of children aged 3 to 8. Data files for 1993 include the School Readiness Survey, a survey of the characteristics and experiences of children aged 3 years through second grade, and the School Safety and Discipline Survey, a review of school environment, discipline, and safety. The Parent file represents grades 3 through 12, and the Youth file represents grades 6 through 12. The Adult Education survey was repeated in 1995 with modifications based on experience and new research issues. The 1995 data files of the Early Childhood Program Participation survey are also presented for children from birth through grade 3. In 1996, the following surveys were conducted: (1) Household and Library; (2) Parent and Family Involvement in Education and Civic Involvement; (3) Youth Civic Involvement; and (4) Adult Civic Involvement. These components present information on family involvement in the education of children in the elementary and secondary grades and the civic involvement of parents, adults, and youth in grades 6 through 12. The electronic codebook for the data files is included on the disc, and installation directions are included. TYPE OF SURVEY: National Survey; Sample Survey. FREQUENCY: Periodic.
