I'm using the zonal statistics in spatial analyst ArcMap 10.2. The input zone is a feature (conterminous US states) and the raster (.tiff - signed integer) is biomass for the entire conterminous US. All data have been projected to albers equal area. I have selected "Ignore No Data"

The problem:Zonal Statistics does not produce an attribute table. What should I do?

  • Are you getting an error? Or, does the tool complete successfully with no outputs? – Fezter Nov 17 '14 at 22:31
  • The tool runs successfully, but no attribute table is created. – SoilSciGuy Nov 17 '14 at 22:34

    Can you edit your question to include a screenshot of the dialog box of the Zonal Statistics as Table tool? – Fezter Nov 17 '14 at 22:39
  • This question was specifically in regards to the Zonal Statistics Tool, not Zonal Statistics as Table. But I did also try the the zonal statistics as table, which did not successfully execute and I've not investigated further. I will give that another shot tomorrow. Thank you for your help. – SoilSciGuy Nov 17 '14 at 22:47

    I understand that, but the output of the Zonal Statistics tool is a raster, not an attribute table. I think your best option is to use the Zonal Statistics as Table tool. – Fezter Nov 17 '14 at 22:55

Make one after you run the tool using the Build Raster VAT tool. It must be integer data.


Instead of using the Zonal Statistics Tool, try using the Zonal Statistics as Table tool. This will create a table of the results. You can then join this back to your Polygon layer.
