The National Household Education Survey for 1996 (NHES:96), a telephone survey of households taking place from January through April 1996, is designed to cover several components: (1) Household and Library (HH&L) (55,838 completed interviews); (2) Parent and Family Involvement in Education and Civic Involvement (PFI/CI) (20,792 completed interviews); (3) Youth Civic Involvement (YCI) (8,044 completed interviews); and (4) Adult Civic Involvement (ACI) (2,250 completed interviews). In the PFI/CI component, one parent was asked about the education and care of one child in grades 3 through 5 (regardless of how many children in the family) and one in grades 6 through 12, so that two children per family could be sampled if they were older and younger. For the YCI component, one child was sampled in each household with students in grades 6 through 12. The ACI component included adults aged 18 and older who were not in elementary or secondary school or the Armed Forces. The PFI/CI component focuses on children's schools and family involvement, while the Youth and Adult Civic Involvement components address civic attitudes, participation, and knowledge. This paper contains the interviewer questionnaire texts for the Screener/HH&L, the PFI/CI, YCI, and ACI interviews. (SLD)
