significance of spatial relationships between two layer

Hi everyone,

I've got two point layers of data, and all I'd like to do is find the statistical significance of their relationship
- I can't seem to run nearest neighbour between two layers
- regression analysis isn't really applicable because i'm not interested in variables/other input fields- only the spatial locations

The only other thing i can think of is run 100+ random data simulations and use this to find 'expected' values to compare to my 'observed' values.

Surely I'm missing a simple solution?

Thanks- J
