    The objective of a fuzzy regression model is to illustrate the potentialpossibilities of the target system. In the interval fuzzy regression model,system possibilities are measured by the width of the interval indicated by themodel. If the center of the model coincides with the center of the possibilitydistribution, more information could be obtained about the possibilities of thetarget system. As the model should be intuitive, this would make the proposedmodel more user-friendly and broadly applicable. In this paper, we use thepopulation of a district and its number of households as a numerical example,and we use a basin area and a drift distance in Japan as an application of ourmodel to check its features.
