We introduce a new multivariate regression model based on the generalized Poisson distribution, which we called geographically-weighted multivariate generalized Poisson regression (GWMGPR) model, and we present a maximum likelihood step-by-step procedure to obtain parameters for it. We use the maximum likelihood ratio test to examine the significance of the regression parameters and to define their critical region.
