Japanese Encephalitis (JE) an important disease of viral origin has attracted the attention of public health specialists in South East Asia Regions especially in the BBIN (Bangladesh, Bhutan,  India & Nepal) countries due to its endemicity, high case fatality rate (CFR) and residual problems among survivors. JE has been occurring in the endemic form since long back particularly in northern states of India. Maximum number of JE cases occurred in 2005 as per records. So we have chosen year 2005 for analysis of age and sex distribution of JE cases and their association. So we divided ages in four age groups 0-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15 & above; these age groups are associated with JE cases (survive & deaths) in different districts in U.P. In this paper, it is tested whether age groups and consequences of JE attacks are associated or not as per given records.
