Is it possible to use arcpy.da.SearchCursor() to get a count of unique features in a field without a dictionary?
So, by this I mean if I have a field called TEXT which contains 10,000 rows populated with either A or B. Can I use the da.SearchCursor to quickly give me the count for the total amount of A in TEXT and B in the TEXT?
I know it is possible to use Summary Statistics or the Get Count tool but these involve having to make a feature layer and then selecting features or kicking out a table. I looking to have a few steps as possible in my script :-)
