The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a telephone interview survey that has been conducted in the spring of 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, and 1999. The 1999 NHES was a compilation of survey items from previous years that included three interviews, resulting in three data files. The first is the Parent Interview, in which data were collected on a variety of topics, including early childhood program participation, types and frequency of family involvement in children's schooling, school practice to support and involve families, learning activities with children outside of school, and plans for children's postsecondary education. This manual provides documentation and guidance for users of the public release data file for the Parent Interview. It contains a description of the data file and a discussion of data considerations and anomalies. Included, as five appendixes (Appendixes C through G of the complete manual), are the public file layout, the Statistical Analysis System code for creating derived variables, crosswalks of items asked in the NHES:99 Parent Interview and previous NHES administrations, the code book for the file, and directions and code for linking data files. This volume is meant to be used in conjunction with Volume I, which contains more information about the purpose of the study and the sample design. (SLD)
