Nowadays there are many applications including rare itemsets. Here, this paper is concentrating Associations of rare itemsets as association rule mining is considered as one of the most important data mining techniques utilized in the area of market basket data analysis, stock data analysis for frequent items mining. Also it is applied for rare itemsets mining in applications like intrusion detection, medical science, etc. as they have special characteristic like appearing for less number of times. This paper is categorizing them according to the usages of different basic approach, storage structure, mining of items, number of database scans and threshold(s) used, proposing the approach to segregate the rare items from the study of the number of research works done in this area and analyzed the result.
