    Lupp -Local follow-up of youth policy

    Description of practice :

    Carrying out the Lupp survey is a process that takes several months and support for this work among the politicians and officials concerned is therefore essential. The survey is adapted for three different age groups : 13–15 years old, 16–18 years old and 19–25 years old. Each municipality is responsible for processing the data and analyzing the survey results. The municipality may either do this work internally or hire an external researcher (often in practice attached to a local college or university). The views of various associations, organizations, student councils, youth councils and other youth groups may need to be taken into account when analyzing the material. The Swedish National Board for Youth Affairs stores all data and publishes the survey results in a web-based application called WLupp. Here, municipalities, schools, students and other young people can themselves access and analyse the material. The municipality is responsible for producing the final report or a summary and make it available to all those who completed the questionnaire as well as to political decision-makers and municipal administrators, and disseminated through seminars and the local media.

    Need addressed :

    Local youth policy

    Outcomes :

    A first step in the process of developing municipal youth policy is to gain knowledge about the situation of young people. Lupp is a method that municipalities in Sweden can use for developing their local youth policy.
