Summary Reports

Available with Business Analyst license.

Summary

Populates and creates demographic style summary reports for any boundary layer using Esri report templates.

Usage

  • Input layers should be polygons within the extent of the active dataset.

  • Template names generally describe the type of data to be contained within.

  • Reports can be generated for boundary layers or for multiple polygons within a boundary layer. Use the Summarization Options parameter to set how reports will be generated when one or more features are present.

  • Business Analyst Data, used in summarizations and reports, is specified through the geoprocessing Data Source environment setting.

  • When using ModelBuilder, you must create an output folder or select an existing folder before running Summary Reports.

  • The Ring ID Field parameter controls the display of data for each polygon, with the lowest values presented first.

  • The Area Description Field parameter values are displayed as output report headers that distinguish the data for each input polygon.

  • To properly display data for the input sites with multiple polygons, the Store ID Field, Store Name Field, Ring ID Field, and Area Description Field parameters must be set.
