The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), United States Department of Education (ED), requires a contract to continue the National Household Education Survey (NHES) program. This procurement includes the design and conduct of two NHES collections -- one in 2001 (NHES:2001) and one in 2003 (NHES:2003). The NHES:2001 collection will include Early Childhood Program Participation (last collected in 1995) and Adult Education (also collected in 1995). An additional topic will be included in NHES:2001 which will cover After School Program Participation and Activities. Proposed topics for the NHES:2003 are: School Readiness (last collected in 1993), Parent and Family Involvement in Education(last collected in 1996) and an adult component which will collect detailed information on work-related Adult Education. Each collection requires random digit dialing (RDD) sampling methods and computer assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) techniques. Large amounts of data need to be processed and analyzed and statistical reports need to be written under tight time schedules; task schedules overlap, and there are both planning and field operations that may be going on simultaneously.
