Abstract: The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics. 9,774 persons 16 years of age and older, identified as having participated in an adult education activity in the previous 12 months were interviewed. Information included the subject matter of courses taken, duration, sponsorship, purpose and cost. A smaller sample of nonparticipants (n = 2,794) were interviewed to collect data on barriers to participate in adult education. Information on the household, adult's background and current employment was also collected.
