I have some crime data in a point file for the whole united states. I would like to run a hot spot analysis on the data in arcgis 10.4 using the Hot Spot Analysis tool. Instead of running it for the whole united states, I have a CBSA/MSA field which of which I would further like to segment the hotspot analysis to account for these changes in political boundary.
Is this possible to do this with this tool without having to split the US up into these MSA/CBSA sub categories? I cannot seem to find any information on the web on how this maybe done.
