This study investigates the geographically weighted multivariate logistic regression (GWMLR) model, parameter estimation, and hypothesis testing procedures. The GWMLR model is an extension to the multivariate logistic regression (MLR) model, which has dependent variables that follow a multinomial distribution along with parameters associated with the spatial weighting at each location in the study area. The parameter estimation was done using the maximum likelihood estimation and Newton-Raphson methods, and the maximum likelihood ratio test was used for hypothesis testing of the parameters. The performance of the GWMLR model was evaluated using a real dataset and it was found to perform better than the MLR model.
