In the body of your paper, information that does not appear as narrative text must be formatted and labeled as either a table or figure. APA style does not use the terms graph, illustration, or chart. Data presented in rows and columns is labeled as a table; all other graphic presentations, whether a graph, chart, photograph, illustration, and such, are labeled as figures.
Tables and figures must fit within the page margin specifications of the document it appears in. Do not separate a title or caption from the table or figure it identifies; they should appear together on the same page.
