Sorry in advance if my question below is vague but any feedback is much appreciated.  I am running a profile report in a custom BI application that displays results based on a range of variables.  The scores are Chi Square, Index and significance (I don't have the report available to post, sorry). I was hoping someone could give a basic example of how to determine what is relevant related to chi square, index and/or significance scores.  Thanks again.

A Chi-Square distribution is the sum of the squares of k independent normal random variables,
and the significance of the index reflects the chance of observing the result assuming the null hypothesis is true.

thanks ozo, I was looking more for basic sample set and from that sample being able to determine what is relevant with regards to chi square, index and significance scores.  This is a business profile report, so I am not really dealing with a hypothesis, just a comparison of a range of variables.
