ABSTRACT: For extracting useful knowledge which is hidden in large set of data, Data mining is a very important technology. There are some negative perceptions about data mining. This perception may contain unfairly treating people who belongs to some specific group. Classification rule mining technique has covered the way for making automatic decisions like loan granting/denial and insurance premium computation etc. These are automated data collection and data mining techniques. According to discrimination attributes if training data sets are biases then discriminatory decisions may ensue. Thus in data mining antidiscrimination techniques with discrimination discovery and prevention are included. It can be direct or indirect. When decisions are made based on sensitive attributes that time the discrimination is indirect. When decisions are made based on nonsensitive attributes which are strongly correlated with biased sensitive ones that time the discrimination is indirect. The proposed system tries to tackle discrimination prevention in data mining. It proposes new improved techniques applicable for direct or indirect discrimination prevention individually or both at the same time. Discussions about how to clean training data sets and outsourced data sets in such a way that direct and/or indirect discriminatory decision rules are converted to legitimate classification rules are done. New metrics to evaluate the utility of the proposed approaches are proposes and comparison of these approaches is also done.
