I am looking for a way to sum the numerical values contained in a layer file based on a specific field name in ArcGIS 10.7
Let's say that I have a polygon shapefile that contains region names and the number of inhabitants. I would like to sum the number of inhabitants per region name to then illustrate population density on the map.
Is there any tool or code in ArcGIS that can generate a shapefile (not a dbase or a table) where starting from the first example (in the image) I can obtain the attribute table as in the final results?
Alternatively, is it possible to obtain the same results starting from 2 different layers?
