FAQ: Is it possible to add feature percentage for each symbology class to a legend in ArcGIS Pro?

Question

Is it possible to add feature percentage for each symbology class to a legend in ArcGIS Pro?

Answer

No, it is not possible to add feature percentage for each symbology class to a legend in ArcGIS Pro. However, it is possible to display the feature count for each symbology class in the legend. From the counts in the legend, the percentage for each symbology class can be calculated manually by dividing each feature count with the total number of feature counts.

  1. In ArcGIS Pro, open the project containing the feature class, and add a layout.
  2. Insert a map frame of the feature class to the layout.
  3. Add a legend to show the symbology of each class. In the Layout view, click the Insert tab, and click Legend in the Map Surrounds group. Click and drag the legend to place anywhere on the map.
  4. Double-click the new legend. This opens the Format Legend dialog box. Under Legend Items, click Show properties.
