    In this study to identify the disease patterns using statistical methods on data of schedule castes of Patna, Vaishali and Nalanda districts of Bihar. Using model based clustering technique; the study is designed to determine the patterns and hidden relationships in dataset. Clustering is a valuable exploratory tool for data analysis that extracts information from a data set and transforms it into an intelligible structure for further applications. The objective of this study to provide profiling of patients, determine dominant disease and dominant month segment. In this regard, clustering is used to profile patients according to their month attended in OPD.
