Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection is a revised version of the NATIONAL HOUSEHOLD EDUCATION SURVEY, 1991 (ICPSR 9877). Like the original survey, this data collection consists of two main components: the Early Childhood Education Survey (children 3 to 8 years old) (Part 1, Preprimary Data, and Part 2, Primary Data) and the Adult Education Survey (persons 16 and older) (Part 3, Adult Data, and Part 4, Course Data). In the Early Childhood Education (ECE) component, 13,892 parents/guardians of 3- to 8-year-olds completed interviews about their children's early educational experiences. Included in this component were questions on participation in nonparental care/education, characteristics of programs and care arrangements, and early school experiences, including delayed kindergarten entry and retention in grade. In addition to questions about care/education arrangements and school, parents were asked about activities children engaged in with parents and other family members inside and outside the home. Information on family, household, and child characteristics was also collected. In the Adult Education (AE) component, 9,774 persons 16 years of age and older, identified as having participated in an adult education activity in the previous 12 months, were questioned about their activities. Information was collected on up to four courses and included the subject matter of the course, duration, sponsorship, purpose, and cost. A smaller sample of nonparticipants (n = 2,794) also completed interviews about barriers to participation. Information on the household and the adult's background and current employment was also elicited. In addition to the ECE and AE components, two merge files (Parts 5 and 6), containing the course code variables for each reported course, are supplied for use with the Adult and Course data files.

Sampled Universe
(1) Children 3 to 8 years old who were not currently enrolled in primary school or were 6 years or older and receiving home schooling or education in alternative programs. (2) Persons 16 years and older enrolled full-time or part-time in at least one adult education course or activity.
Sampling
A random sampling procedure using random-digit dialing (RDD) was employed. The sample consisted of 4,000 clusters of telephone numbers that yielded a participating residential household total of 60,134. Surveys were conducted entirely by sampling, contacting, and interviewing persons by telephone. Blacks and Hispanics were oversampled to increase the reliability of these estimates.
