An overview of the Statistics toolset

The Statistics toolset contains tools that perform standard statistical analysis (such as mean, minimum, maximum, and standard deviation) on attribute data as well as tools that calculate area, length, and count statistics for overlapping and neighboring features. The toolset also includes the Enrich tool that adds demographic facts like population or landscape facts like percent forested to your data.



Enriches data by adding demographic and landscape facts about the people and places that surround or are inside data locations.


Reads a table and a set of fields and creates a new table containing unique field values and the number of occurrences of each unique field value.

Summarize Nearby

Finds features that are within a specified distance of features in the input layer and calculates statistics for the nearby features. Distance can be measured as a straight-line distance, a drive-time distance (for example, within 10 minutes), or a drive distance (within 5 kilometers). Drive-time and drive distance measurements require that you are logged in to an ArcGIS Online organizational account with Network Analysis privileges, and they consume credits.

Summarize Within

Overlays a polygon layer with another layer to summarize the number of points, length of the lines, or area of the polygons within each polygon, and calculate attribute field statistics about the features within the polygons.

Summary Statistics

Calculates summary statistics for fields in a table.

Tabulate Intersection

Computes the intersection between two feature classes and cross tabulates the area, length, or count of the intersecting features.
