Complete data on the average time or numbers of children who are deprived of their liberty in the country is not available since pre-trial detention data is not systematically collected or centralized in the country. It is known that in
Armenia, 200 children were
sentenced for criminal activity in 2002.
The registered juvenile crime rate in the age group 14-17
years old is high in comparison to the registered total crime
rate. In 2002, 227 per 100,000 juveniles were registered
for commiting crimes compared to 376 per 100,000 for all age groups. It is not known if the denominator for what is considered a crime in the country is the same for adults as for children.
