I believe this is fairly straightforward but I am completely stumped here. I have a large polygon layer of a city boundary; I have smaller polygons in a layer representing neighborhoods within the city. How can I quickly calculate the percentage of the total city area contained within each individual neighborhood? I'm probably picking the wrong things to search for on Google because I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for and I think this should be fairly simple.
