What's the average ratio of subscribers to whole channel views?

So I recently came across a video on the youtube channel of Alan Spicer titled "Why You are Getting Views But Not Subscribers."

I have to wonder: How is one supposed to know they're in the market for such a video? What exactly is the average rate for an organically grown youtube channel of subscribers to total channel views?

And don't tell me that this statistic is impossible to calculate. Remember that both of those are publicaly available statistics. The stats on a channel's "about" page do not show individual video views (you could, in theory, go down each video and tally the individual views, but it would take forever), but it definitely shows the total views across the whole channel. You can also see the channel's total subscribers from nearly any page on that channel.

Considering that socialblade is somehow able to automatically keep track of the public stats for literally every channel on youtube, I'd have to imagine that either the stats, or the data needed to compile the stats, are out there somewhere.

So when a small youtuber looks at these two stats, at what percentage of subscribers to views should they be concerned that they're gaining views but not subscribers, and therefore should be in the market for such a video?

mine is 425,942 views 2,909 subscribers all organic.

I think your see a pretty wide swing across content types though.

It’s hard to say. If you have say 5 videos with 1000 subscribers then it’s very different that 200 videos with 50000. I think 100:1 views to subs is good. Higher is better as you’re in the system more

It's impossible to calculate as there are simply too many variables.
Are you doing meme videos? Animations? Gaming? Makeup? Are you doing anything new? Are your videos even good? You can get loads of views and no subs or tons of subs and no views (1000 subs with no video channels).

In a niche like DIY VR (Something I did once) I could get a sub for every 10-50 views IF IT WAS A GOOD VIDEO whereas with normal gaming it was a subscriber per couple hundred views.
