This paper is about presence of the Turks in the area of Vojvodina, respectively, North Serbia. The main task of the paper was the identification of tendencies concerning number and age structure of the Turks ethnic group. Particular attention was given to the period on the second half of 20th and on the beginning of 21st century. Statistical methods  and mathematics  proceeding are used to compare different parameters of age structure (eg. median age, the old age index etc.). The results of the study will enchance the knowledge about demographic characteristics of Turks in Vojvodina and teherefore might be useful for further research in the field.  They are important because the Turks are among the first ethnic groups which are disappearing from this geographic latitude concerning their number and demographic characteristics.
