The National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics that uses random-digit-dial sampling and computer-assisted telephone interviewing to conduct studies on important education issues. There are three NHES data sets on this CD-ROM, which also contains the electronic codebook for the surveys. The first is the Early Childhood Program Participation Survey (ECPP-NHES:2001), which involved interviews with parents or guardians of children from birth through age 6 who were not yet enrolled in kindergarten. Information was collected about participation in early childhood care and programs (relative care, nonrelative care, center-based programs, and Early/Head Start), parental perceptions of program quality, parental choice of arrangements, and family-child activities. The second data set is that of Before- and After-School Programs and Activities (ASPA-NHES: 2001). This survey involved interviews with the parents or guardians of children enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade, up to age 15. Data were collected about enrollment in school, school characteristics and experiences, before- and after-school care, and self-care. Parents of homeschoolers were asked questions about reasons for schooling their children at home, and support from the public school or district. The final survey, the Adult Education and Lifelong Learning (AELL-NHES:2001). Involved interviews with civilian adults who were age 16 and older and not enrolled in 12th grade and below. Topics included participation in English as a Second Language, basic skills, General Education Development test preparation, higher education degree programs, vocational and technical programs, work-related courses, personal interest classes, and information learning activities at work.
