### How to let my fonts smaller?

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
\begin{table}\caption {\label{tab:table1} SUMMARY STATISTICS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS BY INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTORS}

My title of table is:SUMMARY STATISTICS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS BY INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTORS

How to let it be smaller to ensure it could be within one line?

The font size of the table captions should be the same. The package caption can set the font size for all captions in a document or only for one.

Don't use capitals for all letters. Mixed case text is less wide and better to read.
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] (capitalsvsmixedcase.tex)
\documentclass{article} \begin{document} \begin{table} \caption{SUMMARY STATISTICS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS BY INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTORS} \addtocounter{table}{-1}% \caption{Summary statistics for contributions by individual contributors}\end{table} \end{document}

BTW: Terms in capitals should be letter-spaced, to improve the readability and typograph:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] (withletterspacing.tex)
\documentclass{article}\usepackage{microtype}\begin{document} \begin{table} \caption{\textls{% Use poor man's letter spacing of microtype     SUMMARY STATISTICS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS BY INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTORS}} \addtocounter{table}{-1}% \caption{SUMMARY STATISTICS FOR CONTRIBUTIONS BY INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTORS} \addtocounter{table}{-1}% \caption{Summary statistics for contributions by individual contributors}\end{table} \end{document}
