H0 is independence, i.e. no relation between rows and columns.
In your case you reject the hypothesis that the rows and columns are independent.

From: []On Behalf Of André Paul
 I was wondering what the null hypothesis is for Pearson's test after a two
way tabulation.
Is it that there is no relationship between column and rows or that there is

For example, how is this result to be interpreted?
Pearson chi2(6) =184.1900 Pr = 0.000
