If including more than one graph from the same source, e.g. U.S. Census Bureau, give your audience enough information to distinguish the two graphs on your Works Cited or References page. In this example, putting the name of the publication and the table number, as below, should be enough to distinguish this graph from other U.S. Census Bureau graphs:

Source: U.S. Census Bureau. 2011 Statistical Abstract. Table 416. "Voting-Age Population--Reported Registration and Voting by Selected Characteristics: 1996 to 2008."

 

To create a full citation for this table to put on your Works Cited or References page, cite it as you would any other web page.
