Abstract: The 1999 National Household Education Survey (NHES:1999) was a random digit dial (RDD) telephone survey of households developed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and conducted by Westat. The NHES:1999 was a compilation of key items from previous NHES survey years, and included three interviews: 1. The Parent Interview, in which data were collected on a variety of topics including early childhood program participation, types and frequency of family involvement in children’s schooling, school practices to involve and support families, learning activities with children outside of school, and plans for their children’s postsecondary education. 2. The Youth Interview, in which children in 6th through 12th grades, whose parents had completed a Parent Interview, were asked about school and family environments, civic involvement and community service, and plans for postsecondary education and 3. The Adult Education Interview, in which data, such as type of program, employer support, and degree sought, were collected on characteristics of participation in six types of adult educational activities, including English as a second langage, adult basic education, credential programs, apprenticeships, work-related courses, and personal development courses.
