What is a citation management program?
If you find articles in a database of interest for your research, you may use programs such as RefWorks or EndNote to pull the citations into your personal account and create a collection of references, annotate them, then cite it in your document - the software will automatically put in correctly formatted citations and a bibliography. The Matas Library provides support for RefWorks 2.0 and EndNote Web. There are many other tools available.

Guidelines for Citation of Data Source
Suggested citation to appear at the bottom of all tables and graphs from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) National Health Interview survey:
Data Source: CDC/NCHS, National Health Interview Survey, 2009
In a bibliography, the suggested citation should read:
National Center for Health Statistics. Data File Documentation, National Health Interview Survey, 2009 (machine readable data file and documentation)National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Hyattsville, Maryland. 2010.
The published material should also include a disclaimer that credits any analyses, interpretations, or conclusions reached to the author (recipient of the data file) and not to NCHS, which is responsible only for the initial data.
NHIS questionnaires are in the public domain and no permission is required to use them. However, NCHS should be cited as the author of the questions.
