This report compares estimates of selected data from the two components of the 1993 National Household Education Survey (NHES:93), the School Readiness (SR) survey and the School Safety and Discipline (SS&D) survey, with data from other surveys and published sources. The two different components cover a variety of topics related to education, and they include children and adolescents from age 3 through grade 12. As a result, comparisons are made from 12 national surveys from several government agencies. Observed differences are explored for the effects of differences in survey methodology, timing, definition, and question wording. Estimates from the NHES:93 SR survey for characteristics of early childhood educational experiences are, in many respects, quite similar to estimates from other surveys collecting similar data from similar populations. One of the primary reasons for the differences that do exist is the wording of survey questions. Timing of surveys, and definitions of ages also affect comparability. Findings from the SS&D component are also generally consistent with findings from other surveys. On issues where the wording is similar, the estimates tend to be similar. Appendix A contains summary descriptions of the survey data sets used for this report. (Contains 29 tables and 24 references.) (SLD)
