I want table like in the picture.

    Hi, welcome to TeX.SX. It's great that you provide a code example, but it wouldn't hurt to state the problem in words as well. One suggestion would be to reorganize the table, with present study below previous study, that would reduce the width of the table. – Torbjørn T. Feb 20 '14 at 23:15

    Is there a question? By the way, there is no small environment that I know of. – cfr Feb 20 '14 at 23:15
  • Another possibility would be to use a landscape page to display the tabular. – cfr Feb 20 '14 at 23:21
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – Martin Schröder Feb 20 '14 at 23:24

    I'm not saying remove one of the studies, I'm saying put the two studies in two separate rows ... – Torbjørn T. Feb 20 '14 at 23:29

There are lots of ways to put it into landscape, but the following will at least make it fit on a page. (BTW, it is also too big for landscape.)

  • Actually, I like Jesse's solution better. I just couldn't remember \cline at the time. – John Kormylo Feb 21 '14 at 16:31

This is one possible solution where labels (1) to (15) are added for clearance. This solution thinks cfr and torbjorn fellow users are giving the right direction and furthermore, the gap (shown by (A),B,C here) between the two study categories is given troubles. There are a total of 16 columns and the multicolumn grouping is a source of error too.

Note: removing (A),B,C will give the right gap. Here they serve as beacons for reference.

Squeezed tabular

You could do this. I don't recommend it, but it is possible.
