PROJECT SUMMARY FOR 2001-JR-BX-KOO1 S2

The Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP) is a study designed to produce national estimates of the demographic characteristics, background and institutional experiences of young offenders in residential facilities. SYRP will collect critical information on conditions of confinement; victimization; substance abuse, health and mental health needs and treatment utilization; and educational needs and services for juvenile offenders in placement. In-depth information will be provided on current offenses for which juveniles are being held in custody as well as their prior experiences with the juvenile justice system. Currently, no national data are collected on the characteristics and needs of these youth from their perspective. SYRP will also update the information collected by BJS in the Survey of Youth in Custody done in 1987.

This award will support additional analyses and dissemination of findings from the National Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP). In Spring 2003, Westat carried out the SYRP, successfully completing interviews with over 7,000 youths in a national sample of over 200 residential facilities. Over the past year, OJJDP and Westat have shared many of the early findings from the study with the project's Advisory Board and have presented these findings at various conferences. Based on feedback received from juvenile justice researchers, administrators and policymakers, OJJDP is providing supplemental funding to Westat to support additional analyses of the data and to complete the development of a series of OJJDP Bulletins summarizing the study findings.

These funds will be used to complete work on the Survey of Youth in Residential Placement as described in the proposal's statement of work.
