Enrich Tool - No Option to Enrich Dominant Lifemode Group?

I'm not sure if I am looking in the right place but I can't seem to find "Dominant Lifemode Group" in the variable selector in the "Enrich" tool. I know I can enrich the dominant tapestry segmentation but I was wondering if this variable is available for enrichment in Pro. I have lifemode group by census block group in my BA data but was hoping to enrichment non census boundaries with dominant lifemode. 



Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello @ColinMcNamara,

If you use this variable in the Business Analyst Web app, you will also notice a similar behavior. For example, that this specific variable is available for Color-Coded Maps but not in Smart Map Search.


Unlike the other tapestry variables, this variable is code based (unique values) and it cannot be apportioned when enriching your sites. As a result, it might not be available in all workflows. 

Thanks for reaching out.

Hi @FasilTiru after doing a little digging I found those unique value variables in ArcMap but not in ArcGIS Pro.

Hi Colin,

I am a Product Engineer on the Business Analyst Desktop team. I am able to reproduce the variable discrepancy that you are seeing between Business Analyst for ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro. We are looking into this now and I will reply with additional information as soon as it is available.  

Thank you for providing this feedback, Colin. And thank you, Fasil, for looping us in.

More to come!
