  Annotation: This Bulletin introduces the first Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP), the third component in the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s collection of surveys providing updated statistics on youth in custody in the juvenile justice system.
  Abstract: The SYRP is unique in that it is the only current national survey to obtain information about youth in custody by asking the youth themselves through anonymous interviews. This method of questioning can address issues that no other information source covers. It also conveys the special perspectives of the youth about their offenses and offense histories and their experiences in placement. The SYRP was designed and implemented by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in the 1990s to provide enhanced juvenile custody statistics. This Bulletin reviews the SYRP’s background, describing its design and methodology, discussing its strengths and limitations, and summarizing the questions it answers about the population of youth in custody.
