Statistics (Please help!!!)

The following table gives the number of deaths due to accidental falls for each month during 1970. Is there any evidence for a departure from uniformity in the rate over time? That is, is there a seasonal pattern to this death rate? If so, describe its pattern and speculate as to causes. Use Pearsons chi-square test at a level of significance of 0.05. Make sure to state null and alternative hypotheses, compute the test statistics, discuss relative size of p-value and state conclusion in the context of this problem. All these things are required in the following problems as well.

Month/ Number of Deaths

January = 1668
February = 1407
March = 1370
April = 1309
May = 1341
June = 1338
July = 1406
August = 1446
September = 1332
October = 1363
November = 1410
December = 1526
