In this article, we made an effort to conduct statistical analysis of the phenomenology of child delinquency within the 10 – year period from 2006 to 2016 in order to see which type of criminality is most common for child delinquency. Firstly, we cross-up the data for the number of reported, charged and convicted children for crimes in the period of 2006 to 2016. This is especially important because not always the reported number of children corresponds with the number of charged and even less with the number of convicted children. This is because the measures that provide assistance and protection and other alternatives that the prosecutor has as an option in deciding whether to initiate a procedure significantly reduces the number of accused children in relation to the number of reported cases. From the analysis and comparison of the data, we can conclude that the phenomenology of child delinquency in Macedonia in the relevant period from 2006 to 2016 is mainly in the area of crime against property with the highest percentage of both reported, accused and convicted for each of the years in this period. Next, we presented the total number of convicted children in the period of 10 years, according to the type of crime and we gave general remarks for child delinquency for the relevant period and recommendations for best preventive policy. Key words: child, child delinquency, crime, phenomenology, etiology, Macedonia.
