Is there an easy way to show the count of features at the tail end of the legend description? Say I have a 37 users (records) of a particular library, and 24 of a different library. I want to show those counts in the legend without having to manually change the labels after counting each of the records. (e.g. the legend label should look like this "Brookfiled, 37" "Elm
Grove, 24") These would be stacked of course. I am using a Categories thematic to show the
various types.

Mapping Center Answer:

There’s a support article entitled, “How To: Automatically display feature counts in the ArcMap TOC and legends” with source code that performs exactly this function.
