Avinissery has an average literacy rate of 83%, higher than the national average of 59.5%. 12% of the population is under 6 years of age. A lot of villagers are occupied in gold work like the neighboring places Cherpu, Perinchery, Ammadam, Vallachira, and Ollur. This has led to immigration of workers from Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and North East India.[3] The famous Malayalam poet Mullanezhi and Indian National Congress leader V. R. Krishnan Ezhuthachan are from this census town.
