FOOTNOTE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
A footnote is a note or other text located at the bottom of a page of text, manuscript, book or statistical tabulation that provides comment on or cites a reference for a designated part of the text or table.

Context:
Attention is drawn to the footnote by means of a mark, number, etc, in the main body of the text. A footnote generally contains information that is related to but of lesser importance than the larger work in the main body of the text or table.
