I agree with Hugo, just want to add something. This is used to avoid repetitive dimensions. The following text from

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engineering_drawing_abbreviations_and_symbols
can help you understand this better.

TYP means 'Other features share the same characteristic. For example, if the drawing shows 8 holes on a bolt circle, and just one is dimensioned, with "TYP" or "(TYP)" following the dimension label, it means that that hole is typical of all 8 holes; in other words, it means that the other 7 holes are that size also.' However, now it has been replaced by a more clear notation for such dimensions. 'The latest revisions of Y14.5 deprecate "TYP" by itself in favor of the specifying of a number of times, such as "2X" or "8X".'

So, in your drawing 1 TYP means there is same amount of offset (1 unit) around that sketch.
