The problem of determining the optimal cross‐reference structure for a given index and for a given community of users is discussed. A cross‐reference structure is represented as a graph in which the nodes are index terms and the links are relations between index terms. In order to clarify the concept of ‘level of cross‐referencing’ the characteristics of cross‐reference structures are studied. Some measures of cross‐reference distributions are suggested as a means of comparing the cross‐referencing levels of subject indexes. Types of relations linking the terms of cross‐references in existing indexes and thesauri are examined. The implications of the study for the construction and testing of indexes and thesauri are discussed.
When you refer to a particular figure in your document, rather than typing in “Figure 2”, you can use a cross-reference, so if the figure number changes, the in-text reference will also change. This will also work to reference page numbers of headings and so on.
- Put your cursor where you want the reference to be. On the References Ribbon, in the CaptionsGroup, click the Cross-reference () icon.
- Select the type of item you are referencing from the Reference type pulldown.
- For figures, select Only Label and Number from the Insert reference to: pulldown, unless you want the entire caption to appear in the text.
- Select the item you want to reference from the For which caption: section.
- Click Insert and close the Cross-reference dialog box.

What does it mean if one thing is “cross referenced against” the other? Like the following example:
