The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is a data collection system of the National Center for Education Statistics. It focuses on educational issues that are best addressed by contacting individual households rather than institutions. The primary purpose of the NHES is to conduct repeated measurements of the same phenomena at different points in time. In 1991, the NHES collected information about the school readiness of children up to grade 2 and about school safety and discipline. This paper presents information on unit response, weighting, item response, and imputation in the 1993 NHES. The section on "Unit Response in the NHES:93" describes responses and completion rates for the NHES:93, including data on these rates for the Screener Interview, the extended School Readiness interviews, and the extended School Safety and Discipline interviews broken down for parents and students. "Weighting and Estimation" discusses the procedures used for producing the weights to estimate characteristics from the NHES:93 sample and to estimate sampling errors for those estimates. "Item Response in the NHES:93" presents item response rates for the NHES:93 questionnaire and discusses the methodology used to compute response rates. "Imputation in the NHES:93" describes the imputation procedures used in this survey, which was the first NHES survey to impute all missing values. (Contains 19 tables and 7 references.) (SLD)
