National Household Education Survey (NHES) Series RSS

Investigator(s): United States Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics

The NHES is designed to collect information from households on a variety of educational issues. Surveys were fielded in the spring of 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, and 2001. The first survey collected information from parents concerning early childhood education. In 1993, parents were asked about the school readiness of their children, and both parents and children were asked about school safety and discipline. The 1995 survey focused on early childhood program participation. Parent involvement in the education of their children and parent civic involvement were addressed in 1996. Youths were interviewed about their civic involvement as well. Information was also collected about household use of public libraries. NHES: 1999 is a compilation of key items from previous NHES survey years in addition to a few new items. Some of the topics covered in the parent and youth interviews included the school and family environments as well as both groups' plans for postsecondary education. The adult interview posed questions about adult educational activities, including participation in English as a second language, adult basic education, and professional and personal development courses. NHES: 2001 is currently being processed for release.
