APA 7 Referencing

General rules

Labels for tables

  • All tables should be numbered using bold font.  e.g. Table 1
  • The title appears below the table number in italics.                                                                                                              

Table 1                                                                                                                                                                             
Supply Available

Note.  A note can appear below the table to give more information that cannot be included in the table.  For example, the note may explain the abbreviations used in the table. 

(APA manual, 2020, p197).

Referring to tables you have reproduced in your text

  • Always use the table number when referring to a table in your text.                                                                                                    e.g. A large majority of students prefer to attend class in person (see Table 2).
