Abstract: The National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES) was developed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and incorporates random digit dial (RDD) telephone surveys of households in the United States. The 2001 administration (NHES:2001) was conducted by Westat from January 2 through April 14, 2001. In the NHES:2001 Screener, household members were enumerated and demographic and educational information that determined eligibility for the surveys was collected. Adults (persons age 16 or older), who were not enrolled in grade 12 or below and also not on active duty in the military responded to this Adult Education and Lifelong Learning (AELL) survey. Data such as type of program, employer support, and credential sought were collected for participation in six types of adult educational activities: English as a Second Language, basic skills education, credential programs, apprenticeships, work-related courses, and personal interest courses. Some information on work-related informal learning activities was gathered as well.
