    You have the word Frequency in every column. Get it out to save space. – Johannes_B Feb 4 at 6:54
  • any news? now you have two examples of your table ... – Zarko Feb 5 at 9:16

  • your table is too wide to fit in the text area of your page
  • you have two possibilities:
    • use abbreviations for column heads and write their meaning as table notes below the table (for this is easily done with the threeparttable package)
    • make the text area wider (by using the geometry package) and write the column headers in two lines (using the \thead macro from the package makecell)
  • first case:
