Many models for the spread of infectious diseases in populations have been analyzed mathematically and applied to specific diseases. In this paper we have used SIR model to study the outbreak of measles epidemic in Albania during the year 2018. Two basic parameters of SIR model are determined using least square principle and other numerical techniques. The model can be used to predict in advance the dynamics of the disease and this can help finding the best possible strategies to control its spread.
