In data mining it is normally desirable that discovered knowledge should possess characteristics such as accuracy, comprehensibility and interestingness. The vast majority of data mining algorithms generate patterns that are accurate and reliable but they might not be interesting. Interestingness measures are used to find the truly interesting rules which will help the user in decision making in exceptional state of affairs. A variety of interestingness measures for rule mining have been suggested by researchers in the field of data mining.
