This study aims to develop a method for multivariate spatial overdispersion count data with mixed Poisson distribution, namely the Geographically Weighted Multivariate Poisson Inverse Gaussian Regression (GWMPIGR) model. The parameters of the GWMPIGR model are estimated locally using the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) method by considering spatial effects. Therefore, the significance of the regression parameter differs for each location. In this study, four GWMPIGR models are evaluated based on the exposure variable and the spatial weighting function. We compare the performance of those four models in real-world application using data on the number of infant, under-5 and maternal deaths in East Java in 2019 using five predictor variables. In this study, the GWMPIGR model uses one exposure variable and three exposure variables. Compared to the fixed kernel Gaussian weighting function, the GWMPIGR model with the fixed kernel bisquare weighting function and one exposure variable has a better fit based on the AICc value. Furthermore, according to the best GWMPIGR model, there are several regional groups formed based on predictors that significantly affected each event in East Java in 2019.
