As presented in the above picture, when I use the command \rotatebox{90} to rotate a table the caption (title) of the table doesn't rotate. How can I make the title rotate with the table? Note that not the whole table is included in the below MWE.

   documentclass[12pt]{report}
        \usepackage{multirow}
        \usepackage{bigstrut}
    \usepackage{booktabs}
    \usepackage{rotating}


        \begin{document}

\begin{table}[htbp]
 \centering
  \caption{17 oldest associations of the Zurich gymnastics organization 1871 - 1911}
  \tiny
    \rotatebox{90}{ \begin{tabular}{lccc|ccccc|cc|cc}
    \hline
    \textbf{} & \multicolumn{3}{c|}{\textbf{1871}} & \multicolumn{5}{c|}{\textbf{1886}}    & \multicolumn{2}{c|}{\textbf{1907}} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{\textbf{1911}} \bigstrut\\
    \hline
    Association & Active & Passive & Total & Active & Passive & Honorary & Mitturner & Total  & Active & Total & Active & Total \bigstrut\\
\hline
    Total & 556   & 89    & \multicolumn{1}{c}{645} & 507   & 519   & 284   & 19    & \multicolumn{1}{c}{1'329} & 675   & \multicolumn{1}{c}{4'246} & 729   & 5'101 \bigstrut\\
    \hline
    \end{tabular}
    }%
  \label{tab:addlabel}%
\end{table}%
\end{document}

    sidewaystable instead of table? – egreg Jan 20 '15 at 21:42

Since you're already loading the rotating package, you could use that package's sidewaystable environment instead of the basic table environment. Be sure not to use the \rotatebox macro in addition to using a sidewaystable environment.

I would also recommend you omit all vertical lines and use the rule-drawing commands of the booktabs package to obtain well-spaced horizontal lines.

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{caption}
\begin{document}

\begin{sidewaystable}
\footnotesize
\centering
\caption{17 oldest associations of the Zurich gymnastics organization, 1871--1911} \label{tab:addlabel}%
\begin{tabular}{@{} lccc ccccc cc cc @{}}
\toprule
Association 
& \multicolumn{3}{c}{\textbf{1871}} 
& \multicolumn{5}{c}{\textbf{1886}}    
& \multicolumn{2}{c}{\textbf{1907}} 
& \multicolumn{2}{c}{\textbf{1911}} \\
\cmidrule(lr){2-4} \cmidrule(lr){5-9} 
\cmidrule(lr){10-11} \cmidrule(l){12-13}
& Active & Passive & Total & Active & Passive & Honorary 
& Mitturner & Total  & Active & Total & Active & Total \\
\midrule
Total & 556   & 89    & 645 & 507   & 519   & 284   & 19    
& 1'329 & 675   & 4'246 & 729   & 5'101 \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\end{sidewaystable}%
\end{document}
