Citing Information Within a Table

When you create a table compiled of information from other sources, include a superscript letter at the end of the cited information (start with “a” and order left to right and top to bottom). Include citation information with the author and year below the table after “Note” following the corresponding superscript letter. While numerical data does not require a p./para. # for information in a table, make sure you include the p./para. # for any quoted text. If you use a source more than once, use the same superscripted letter.
