Early Childhood Longitudinal Study Home Page Early Childhood Longitudinal Studies program is sponsored primarily by NCES in collaboration with other federal agencies and organizations. The program is comprised of two longitudinal studies: the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998-99 (ECLS-K) and the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Birth Cohort (ECLS-B). Combined, these studies provide detailed information on children's health, early care and early school experiences. The ECLS-K began in Fall of 1998 with a nationally representative sample of approximately 21,000 kindergartners from about 1,000 kindergarten programs, both public and private. These children were followed longitudinally through the eighth grade, with data collections in the fall and spring of kindergarten and first grade, in the spring of third and fifth grade, and follow-ups in eighth grade. The ECLS-B includes a nationally representative sample of approximately 14,000 children born in the calendar year 2001 who were followed longitudinally from birth through kindergarten entry, with data collected from the child's birth certificate and when the children were about 9 months of age, 2 years of age, preschoolers and kindergartners.

National Household Education Survey Home Page The National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES) is a household-based data collection system designed to address a wide range of education related issues. The NHES collects timely data about the educational activities of the U.S. population. NHES surveys have been conducted in 1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2007. The most recent data collection in 2007 consisted of two surveys: School Readiness and Parent and Family Involvement in Education. Most NHES surveys have been conducted on a repeating basis to measure the same phenomena at different points in time. The NHES includes surveys on adult education, parent and family involvement in education, before- and after-school programs and activities, civic involvement, early childhood program participation, household library use, school readiness, and school safety and discipline.
