Abstract: The National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES) was developed by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to collect information on important educational issues through random digit dial (RDD) telephone surveys of households in the United States. The 2003 administration (NHES:2003) was conducted by Westat from January 2 through April 13, 2003. In the NHES:2003 Screener, household members were enumerated and demographic and educational information that determined eligibility for the two topical surveys was collected. Adults age 16 or older who were not enrolled in grade 12 or below, not institutionalized, and not on active duty in the U.S armed forces were interviewed for this Adult Education for Work-related Reasons survey (AEWR-NHES:2003). It gathered information about participation in college and university degree or certificate programs taken for work-related reasons, postsecondary vocational/technical diploma or degree programs taken for work-related reasons, apprenticeships, work-related courses, and work-related informal learning. In addition, the survey explored factors associated with participation or nonparticipation in adult education activities.
