Title:  Data File User's Manual for the National Household Education Surveys Program of 2016: Supplementary Geocode Files for the Parent and Family Involvement in Education Survey, Early Childhood Program Participation Survey, and Adult Training and Education Survey
Description: This Data File User's Manual contains documentation about the purpose and contents of restricted-use data files that include additional geographic information for the three 2016 National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES:2016) surveys: the Early Childhood Program Participation (ECPP) Survey, the Parent and Family Involvement in Education (PFI) Survey, and the Adult Training and Education Survey (ATES). Variables are drawn from administrative and survey data from NCES and other federal agencies (primarily data from the Census Bureau) to expand the analytic utility of NHES:2016 data. The supplementary data include geographic identifiers down to the census block group and identifiers for a childís assigned public school district. The files also include measures based on radii around a respondentís home for access to different education programs and schools. While additional geographic characteristic information is provided, the data support estimates of national-level characteristics and not subnational geographies like states or specific localities. The additional geocode data can be used to produce nationally representative estimates or national-level subgroup analyses such as schooling experiences of students living in low-population density areas with high employment rates across the U.S. but not schooling experiences of students in a specific rural area.
