APA Style

Your guide to citing and referencing in APA Style (7th edition)

Citing Information from a Chart, Table or Graph

If you use information from a chart, table or graph (but do not reproduce it in your paper), follow the usual procedure for citing and create an in-text and References entry. 

If the chart, table or graph came from another source, such as a book, newspaper article, or website, cite the work it came from (i.e. the book, newspaper article or website).  For example, if you are citing information from a chart you viewed in an article in Macleans magazine, create a citation for the article.

Citing Information from an Infographic

If the author name and website name are the same, omit the website name.
