I'm reviewing a scientific article to be publish. I tried to evidence that pathogens collected from different geographic areas clustered. I used Nearest Neighbour test to prove it. However, I've noticed that no p-value is assigned in my output. So, how could I get the p-value from my analysis? It will be for a publication. Otherwise, how could I explain the significance of the result?
This is the output obtained from my analysis using QGIS3:
Observed mean distance: 495.1212145321877
Expected mean distance: 654.1975182291224
Nearest neighbour index: 0.7568375005036007
Number of points: 28
Could anyone help me? Thank you in advance
