what is the reason for the different significance levels giving different answers (ie reject/accept) is it something to do with chance?
all help appreciated

If your answer is below the critical value necessary for 99% chance of significance but above the critical value necessary for 95% chance of significance then you can reject the null hypothesis and say there appears to be a correlation, albeit not a very strong one.

my answer for Rn is 1.52 which is pretty much in the middle of Regular and Random, what does it go with or does it show that some of the villages are in a regular patern while the others are random??

Results outwith the yellow shaded area can be taken as statistically significant.
As you can see above, the Rn value needs to be quite close to 1 for it to be insignificant either way (especially if there are many values).
