The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a data collection system of the National Center for Education Statistics that collects and publishes data on the condition of education in the United States. It is a telephone survey of the noninstitutionalized population of the country, and it focuses on issues that are best studied through contacting households rather than institutions. The primary purpose of the NHES is to conduct repeated measures of the same phenomena at different points in time. Full-scale implementations of the NHES have been conducted in 1991, 1993, 1995, and 1996. This paper presents information on the NHES:93 survey design, data collection procedures, monitoring of interviews, interview administration time, and data editing. The 1993 NHES addressed readiness for school and safety and discipline in school. The School Readiness component covered a number of experiences of preschool children that have a bearing on readiness to start school. This survey used interviews with parents to sample 10,888 children aged 3 through 7, or in second grade and below. The School Safety and Discipline component focused on school environment, school safety, school discipline policy, and alcohol and other drug use and education. For this component, parents of 12,680 children in grades 3 through 12. The following sections are included: (1) "Overview of the National Household Education Survey"; (2) "Monitoring Interviews in the NHES:93"; (3) "Survey Administration Time for the NHES:93"; and (4) "NHES:93 Data Editing." Three appendixes contain a monitoring form, 22 graphs of monitoring results, and a database design diagram. (Contains 3 figures, 12 tables, and 17 references.) (SLD)
