Sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), the Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP) is the only national survey that gathers data directly from youth in the juvenile justice system. SYRP surveys offender youth between the ages of 10 and 20 and asks about their backgrounds, offense histories and problems, the facility environment, experiences in the facility, experiences with alcohol and drugs, experiences of victimization in placement, medical needs and services received and their expectations for the future.
