Data mining which is the automatic process of extraction of useful data by using statistical and visualization techniques has become the new preference for statisticians, scientists and researchers alike. It helps in looking out for the most important trends in data and taking business - oriented decisions. The paper here presents an application of data mining in the analysis of census and looksat the noticeable trends. The objective of the paper is to discover the relevant information of gender inequality in all spheres from the primary census of the Raigarh district in Maharashtra with the help of appropriate data mining methods like clustering, visualization using the Weka tool.
