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 NHES:96 included two topical survey components, "Parent and Family Involvement in Education," 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 public release data file for the Adult CI component. It contains a description of the Adult CI files and a discussion of data considerations and anomalies. Volume V is meant to be read in conjunction with Volume I, which provides information about the entire study. The Adult CI file contains data from all completed Adult CI interviews. There are 2 records for each completed interview, so that the file contains 4,500 records for the 2,250 cases. It is organized so that logically related variables are grouped together. Data are listed in the following order: (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. Included as appendixes are the public file layout, Statistical Analysis System code for creating derived variables, the codebook for the Adult CI public data file, and directions and sample codes for linking NHES:96 data files.
