Abstract: 

Description: The National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES) provides descriptive data on the educational activities of the U.S. population and offers researchers, educators, and policymakers a variety of statistics on the condition of education in the United States. The NHES surveys cover learning at all ages, from early childhood to school age through adulthood. The most recent data collection in 2007 consisted of two surveys: Parent and Family Involvement in Education and School Readiness.

Population: The NHES is designed to survey a representative sample of the non-institutionalized civilian population in the United States. Between 45,000 and 60,000 households are sampled in the original screening. Data is collected through one-on-one phone interviews. Different surveys are administered for specific topic areas over multiple years (ex. school readiness measured in 1993, 1999, 2007).

Periodicity: 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2001, and 2003, 2005, 2007 (2012 data collection is underway)
