I am new(ish) to ArcGIS and haven't done Stat's in a few years so sorry if this seems very simple.

I am attempting to explore relationships between respiratory diseases and 3/4 environmental variables over a large area. I have been advised to use GWR and I've read around the subject and it seems appropriate. However, it talks about spatial autocorrelation as well. I am wondering if I am meant to run Moran's i on the original data or on the residual results from GWR? Also, I have been advised I want the Morans i result to be around zero, is this correct?

Thank you,
