OJJDP Releases Survey Data on Juveniles in Residential Placement
March 26, 2013
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, through the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data, has released the Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP) 2003. SYRP collects data from youth in the juvenile justice system ages 1020. The survey asked youth about their backgrounds, offense histories, experiences in the confinement facility, their use of alcohol and drugs, their medical needs and the services they received, and any experiences of victimization in placement.
SYRP joins the OJJDP-sponsored Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP) and the Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC) for updated statistics on youth in the juvenile justice system.
