Abstract: The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics. The adult education survey provides data on the characteristics of adult participants and nonparticipants in adult education programs and explores why some adults participate in these activities and others do not. Data cover participation in the past three years, and characteristics of adult education courses or activities including course title, basic skills and training content, degree requirement fulfillment, sponsor-employment and payment source and the perceived benefits and barriers to participation of both participants and nonparticipants. Extensive background, employment, and household information was collected from 19,722 adults who were interviewed.
