Collins, Mary A.; Chandler, Kathryn
The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a random digit dial telephone survey of households developed by the National Center for Education Statistics. It has been conducted in 1991, 1993, 1995, and 1996, with varying components each year. The NHES 91/93/95/96 CD-ROM contains an electronic codebook (ECB) program that, after being installed on a personal computer, allows the user to examine the variables in each of the NHES data sets as well as create Statistical Analysis System (SAS) or Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) programs to generate an extract data file for any of the NHES data files on the CD-ROM. The files include the 1991 and 1995 Adult Education files, the primary and preprimary education files from 1991, the school readiness and school safety files from 1993, the 1995 early childhood program participation file, and the 1996 household and library, parent and family involvement in education and civic involvement, youth civic involvement, and adult civic involvement files. The ECB is a DOS-based program for IBM-compatible personal computers. Sections describe its contents and use, focusing on what can be done with the ECB and how to do it. Emphasis is on extracting information from the files. Eight appendixes provide specific use information and samples, including SAS and SPSS samples. (SLD)
