Add a source note citationSource:
Add a source note to the footer part of the gt table. A source note is
useful for citing the data included in the table. Several can be added to the
footer, simply use multiple calls of
tab_source_note() and they will be
inserted in the order provided. We can use Markdown formatting for the note,
or, if the table is intended for HTML output, we can include HTML formatting.
The gt table data object
This is the gt table object that is commonly created through use of the
Source note text
With three columns from the
gtcars dataset, let's create a gt table.
We can use the
tab_source_note() function to add a source note to the table
footer. Here we are citing the data source but this function can be used for
any text you'd prefer to display in the footer section.
