Creating Spatial Variable

My name is Guillermo and I'm a senior Political Science student in Mexico.
For my thesis I'm using OLS and GWR tests in order to explain the causes of violence in a particular state (Michoacan).
I'm having trouble finding a proper specified model for this purpose.
I noticed in one of the online seminars "Spatial Statistics: best practices" (which I must say: it was VERY HELPFUL) they use something called "spatial variable" which was created with the tool Near.

I'm trying to create a variable called "distance from urban centers"; however, when I use my polygon and point layers, all I get is cero's. Is there anything I can do to solve this? Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thank you very much in advance
