Description: The NHES:91 is designed to cover two topical components: (1) Early Childhood Education (ECE) and (2) Adult Education (AE).

The parent or guardian most knowledgeable about the care and education of each child was asked to respond to the extended interview for the child. The AE component, interviews were conducted with persons who were age 16 and older, as of December 31, 1990, and not enrolled in elementary or secondary school. Adults identified as adult education participants were sampled at a higher rate than adult education nonparticipants at the screening stage.
