Abstract: The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics. 12,680 parents of children in grades 3 through 12 and 6,504 youth in grades 6 through 12 were interviewed about their school experience in the school safety and discipline survey. Data on school learning environment, discipline policy, safety at school, victimization, availability and use of alcohol/drugs, and alcohol/drug education were collected. Peer norms for behaviors in school and substance use were also included. Extensive family and household background information and data about characteristics of the school attended by the child were collected.
