You may need to place general notes, specific notes, or probability notes under the table. They are arranged in the order listed
A general note explains or provides information about the table. Immediately below the table, write "Note" in italics, followed by a period. Cite your source if the table is reproduced or is created based on data provided by another source. Include the source in your references as well.
A specific note refers to a particular column, row or cell and is indicated by superscript lowercase letters.
A probability note gives the reader the results of the tests for statistical significance. Asterisks indicate the values for which the null hypothesis is rejected, with the probability (p value) specified in the probability note.
Notes should be listed with general notes first, then specific notes, and concluded with probability notes without indentation. Not all note types are required. Include as needed.
