Spatially joining polygons centroid within

Question asked by DavidMatthews on Dec 27, 2017

I have two polygon feature classes that I want to do a spatial join between and sum certain fields. The target feature  has larger polygons (regions) covering the second feature of smaller polygons (property parcels). I would like to use the centroid of the property parcels to do the join as they are not always fully contained in the regions but 'has their centre in' only joins the opposite way, with the target feature being the smaller polygons. 

Is there anyway to do this without creating a point feature from my parcels and using 'contains' as my join?
