My dataset contains data points with many 0's (86%). After running a hot spot analysis at an appropriate neighbourhood size I found two hot spots significant at the 95% level. However both of these hot spots had a 0 value.

Because Getis Ord Gi* is a neighbourhood function identifying "intense" clusters of high values, should I be worried about this finding?

Thank you in advance.
