Filippo et al. (2012) pointed out that the limitations of the gravity model are on fitting the gravity equation formula with multiple parameters and systematic predictive discrepancies. Fitting the gravity model also requires the appropriate sample distribution and quantity. Calibrating a gravity model requires a study to determine the form of the sampling distribution (Kirby 1974). Pearson et al. (1974) stated that the best fit of the trip length distribution (TLD) of urban travel is the Gamma distribution, among other similar distributions.

Spatial regression analysis is often used in this type of analysis by counting spatial autocorrelations existing in variables and residuals through a spatial weighting matrix. There are several types of spatial regression models. 6) where Y is the disease incidence risk vector observed for regions, X is the matrix of a set of explanatory risk factors (variables), and ???? is random error vector with a typical Gaussian distribution. In a classical ordinary least squares (OLS) regression, ???? should be independent.
