I have a parcel layer and I am trying to determine the percentage of each parcel that falls within specific zones. I tried tabular intersect but it just returned an empty output.

I'm using ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop.

    Are the projections of the parcel and zone layers the same? What fields are you using in the Tabulate Intersection tool? – Erica Jun 30 '14 at 14:05

Do the following:

  1. add field "OldArea" to the parcels and populate with area values (Field right click - Calcualte Geometry)
  2. Perform Intersect with the Zones dataset
  3. add another field ("NewArea") and populate with areas after intersection (same way than #1)
  4. calculate the percentage = (NewArea/OldArea) * 100 in the new field
