Citing a website in-text in APA style?

Asked by stemnyjones (3959 points ) September 23rd, 2012

I’ve searched Google, but am still unsure of how to do this correctly.

How do you do an in-text citation for a website in an APA-style paper?

Do you provide the URL in the in-text and, if so, do you link to the exact page the info is on or just the website’s home page? Do you put the author of the article, or the website it comes from?

For example, if I am citing a piece of data from http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/druguse.htm, how would I cite that in the text?
