I want to create a table like this:

enter image description here

Here is the code:

\begin{table}[h]
\begin{threeparttable}
\caption{\textit{Sample Selection}}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{lcccccccc}
\toprule\toprule
& (I) & (II) &  (III) & (IV) & (V) & (VI) & (VII) & (VIII) \\
Variables & ADA Model & GCONCERN Model & MEET Model & LOGFEES Model & ADA Model & GCONCERN Model & MEET Model & LOGFEES Model\\\midrule 
NLEAD & 0.000& -0.037& 0.0301& 0.006&&&& \\
& (0.15) & (-0.16) & (0.35)  & (0.36) &&&& \\
CLEAD &&&& 0.000 &-0.038 & -0.098 & 0.020  \\
&&&& (0.22) & (-0.21) & (-0.92)  & (1.43) \\
Observations & 75,188 & 6,077 & 11,165 & 24,279 & 23,306 & 3,856 & 5,632 & 16,388\\
Adjusted $R^2$ & 0.045 & 0.149 & 0.026 & 0.694 & 0.041 & 0.155 & 0.027 & 0.711\\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular} 
\begin{tablenotes}
      \small
      \item This is where authors provide additional information about
      the data, including whatever notes are needed.
    \end{tablenotes}
\end{threeparttable}
\end{table}

I am using booktabs & caption package. Some of the issues which I am facing goes below:

  1. Even though I am getting bold Table 7, but it's not capitalized and not on a separate line
  2. I have lot of spaces in my table and hence can't see the full table in the output. How do I reduce the spacing between columns?
  3. I am getting space between caption and toprule and note and bottomrule. How can redefine the space distance. I know I can use vspace, but I want to redefine the space option. Thanks.

  • In principle you can use booktabs with longtable; they don't exclude each other. For the format of the caption the use the caption package may help

Here is an (hopefully) almost complete solution, which consists in defining a new display caption style, and loading makecell (allows the use of \\ in cells), siunitxto align vertically the decimal markers thanks to the S column type and, more anecdotically, microtype to have some letter spacing in the caption.

The result is not perfect, though, as the parentheses are not very well positioned – I had to make a manual correction in one of the cells, but I think it is acceptable.

    \documentclass{article}
    \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
    \usepackage[lf, mathtabular]{MinionPro}

    \usepackage[nomarginpar, textwidth = 15cm]{geometry}
    \usepackage{array, threeparttable, booktabs, caption}

    \usepackage{makecell}%
    \usepackage{siunitx}%

    \usepackage{microtype}
    \DeclareCaptionFormat{display}{\textls*[250]{\bfseries\MakeUppercase{#1}}\\[0.8ex]#3}
    \captionsetup{format=display, skip =-0.2ex}

    \begin{document}
    \setcounter{table}{6}

    \begin{table}[h]
    \centering\small%\renewcommand{\tabcolsep}{5pt}
    \begin{threeparttable}
    \caption{\textit{Sample Selection}}
    %
    \sisetup{table-figures-integer =1,table-figures-decimal =3, table-number-alignment=center, %
    table-align-text-pre=false,table-align-text-post=false,table-space-text-pre={(}, table-space-text-post={)}}%, parse-numbers=false
    \begin{tabular}{@{}l*{8}{S}@{}}
    \toprule\toprule%
    Variables & {\thead{(I)\\\emph{ADA}\\Model (1.43)}} &{\thead{(II)\\\emph{GCONCERN}\\Model}} & {\thead{(III)\\\emph{MEET}\\Model}} & {\thead{(IV)\\\emph{LOGFEES}\\Model}} & {\thead{(V)\\\emph{ADA}\\Model}} & {\thead{(VI)\\\emph{GCONCERN}\\Model}} & {\thead{(VII)\\\emph{MEET}\\Model}} & {\thead{(VIII)\\\emph{LOGFEES}\\Model}}\\

        \end{tablenotes}
    \end{threeparttable}
    \end{table}

I have been able to get the caption as I wished by loading the caption package in the following manner:

\usepackage[bf,tablename=TABLE,labelsep=newline,aboveskip=0pt]{caption}

Here bf makes label "Table" bold, tablename = TABLE changes the default label to TABLE, labelsep=newline begins caption on a new line, and aboveskip=0pt reduces the distance between caption and topmargin.

To generate a note under the table I have used the package threeparttable. The code in the question has been updated to reflect the same.

Still struggling with other problems.

  • define a new column type \newcolumntype{M}{>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{1.8cm}} and then change c column specifiers into M to solve the space between columns issue.
