The 1996 National Household Education Survey (NHES:96) was a random digit dial telephone survey of households that was developed by the National Center for Education Statistics and conducted by Westat, Inc. The NHES:96 included two topical survey components, "Parent and Family Involvement in Education," (PFI) which collected data about family involvement in children's schooling, and "Civic Involvement," (CI) which collected data about participation in civic activities and attitudes toward government. This manual provides documentation and guidance for users of the Household and Library public release data file of the NHES:96. It contains a description of the Household and Library data file and a discussion of data considerations and anomalies. The file contains data from all 55,708 completed screener and Household and Library interviews. There are 3 records for each interview, so that the file contains 167,124 records. Data items are listed in the file in the following order: (1) system variables; (2) household member variables; (3) public library use variables; (4) household characteristics; (5) household membership variables; (6) derived variables; (7) weighting and variance estimation variables; and (8) imputation flag variables. Included as four appendixes are the public file layout, the Statistical Analysis System code for creating derived variables, the codebook for the file, and directions and sample code for linking NHES:96 files. Volume II is meant to be read in conjunction with Volume I, which provides an overview of NHES:96 methodology. (SLD)
