This pamphlet describes the National Household Education Surveys (NHES) program, a system of telephone surveys of the noninstitutionalized civilian population of the United States. This data collection system provides information on a wide range of education-related issues. The surveys provide descriptive data on the educational activities of the U.S. population.
