Abstract: The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics. In the 1993 school readiness survey nearly 11,000 parents of children aged 3 through 7 or in second grade or below were interviewed. Information collected covered the developmental characteristics of preschoolers, school adjustment and teacher feedback to parents for kindergartners and primary students, center-based program participation, early school experiences, home activities with family members, and health status. Extensive family and child background characteristics, including parent language and education, income, receipt of public assistance, and household composition, were collected to permit the identification of at-risk children.
