I think that it is pretty clear from your question that you are way out 
of your depth and that you do not understand the concept of "significant 

You should therefore seek help from a competent local statistician.

Although I could be wrong about my estimate of your depth of

makes sense, includes necessary details, and gives list members a 
fighting chance of providing a meaningful answer.
