I'm having difficulty interpreting the given output table.

My goal is to interpret the deviance for when I include my x-variable in my model versus when I do not. Additionally, I would like to find a p-value for the difference in these two deviances.

I understand that in order to find the deviance (D), I am looking for

D = -2ln * likelihood ratio of the fitted over saturated.

I am getting lost on how to interpret this information from the output table for the first part of my question.

As for the second, my intuition tells me I convert the "- 2 Log L" chi-square value into a p value, as I think it is generating my difference in deviance.
