This article refers to the criminological analysis of the state registration of victimological data about criminal victimization in Lithuania. The period of analysis is 2004-2009. Following the validation of new criminal laws on 1 May 2003, from 2004 a period of stable state registration of crime victims, i.e. a period without significant changes in criminal laws, commenced. The article deals with the analysis of spreading of criminal victimization among natural persons and juridical persons in Lithuania. The registered number of crime victims in Lithuania during 2004-2007 decreased in consecutive order (14.3%, compared to 2004). Since 2008 the new changes have become clear—the registered number of persons mentioned above has gone up, though insignificantly, by 5%. The registered number of juridical persons as victims over this period increased (29%, compared to 2005). But juridical persons became victims of misdemeanors more often than natural persons—so their situation was better than that of natural persons. The article deals with different analysis of victimological data concerning adult natural persons and juveniles (children) as victims of crime. The share of adults is stable—approximately 91% during 2004-2009. The share of children was 9% among all registered victims (natural persons) of crime. But really, the situation of children turned for the worse, because their criminal victimization rapidly increased (up to 43%). The level (for 100 000 residents) of criminal victimization in Lithuania during this period, on the contrary, become less (as a total, and in urban areas and in rural areas as well). Accordingly various social and demographical criteria some kinds of residents, that have much more possibility to become direct crime victims are separated. During the last six years one fourth of all registered in Lithuania natural persons became crime victims in rural areas, the last—in urban areas. The gender dispersion of registered crime victims in Lithuania such as that: 61%—men; 39%—women. The registered comparative data for 100 000 residents (level) shows, that the level of criminal victimization in urban areas is approximately 45% higher than in rural areas of Lithuania. During last six years the age structure of registered adult natural persons in Lithuania as follows: 18-20 years old—7,4%; 21-24 years old— 10,8%; 25-29 years old—approximately 12%; 30-39 years old—approximately 22,5%; 40-59 years old—approximately 33%; 60 years and older—approximately 13%. The number of years inside those age groups is different; but counting share for each year allows us to assert, that the first three age groups of natural persons are most violated victimologically. In second place are natural persons of 30-39 years old accordingly to the above-mentioned indicator.
