The 1996 National Household Education Survey (NHES:96) was a random digit dial telephone survey of households developed by the National Center for Education Statistics and conducted by Westat, Inc. The 1996 NHES included two topical survey components: Parent and Family Involvement in Education and Civic Involvement. This manual provides documentation and guidance for users of the public release data file for the Youth Civic Involvement (CI) component of the 1996 NHES. Students in grades 6 though 12 responded to these CI items. The volume contains a description of the Youth CI data file and a discussion of data considerations and anomalies. This volume is meant to be read in conjunction with the "NHES:96 Data File User's Manual, Volume I," which contains more information about the entire study, its design, and implementation. The Youth CI data file contains data from all completed Youth CI interviews. Since there are 3 records for each youth interview, the file contains 24,129 records for the 8,043 cases. The file is organized so that logically related sets of variables are grouped together. Data files are listed as follows: (1) system variables; (2) household membership variables; (3) questionnaire item variables; (4) household characteristics variables; (5) derived variables; (6) weighting and variance estimation variables; and (7) imputation flag variables. Four appendixes contain the public file layout, the Statistical Analysis System code for creating derived variables, the codebook for the Youth CI file, and directions and sample codes for linking NHES:96 data files.
