Well, we could argue that the total views per sub could be redundant as well if anything because what we want is mostly views.I know what you mean, but there are chances that if my or your content was to be shared on an outside platform, it will skew the numbers significantly towards non-subscribers.
For example, one of my videos (skinny fat) was a 24-hour feature on Lifehacker. That brought in huge amounts of non-subscriber views to my video. Let's look at the numbers for the video's lifetime:

Now let's look at a video (bulking) that was released not too long after that and has not been featured elsewhere and shared exclusively on the YT platform (either suggestions, subscriber page, search, etc):

As you can see, it's a complete flip when the video is shared versus not shared. 90% of my views came from non-subscribers on the video that was shared on Lifehacker and 80% of my views came from subscribers on the video that was not shared. This is what I meant by skewed numbers.
Anyways, looking at that data you gave, how long has each of the videos been on youtube for? Just curious. Would it, after some time, stabilise to the average or would it stay that way? I looked into a few of my videos, some are in the average % stated there and some are definitely skewed, so its not that far off. At least for now since I don't have a real viral video yet.
I think you'd be satisfied if we go for the modal % rather than the mean % because of the possible skew. But no one is going to go and collect the data for each one of their videos haha~ Its easier to get an average.[DOUBLEPOST=1466710259,1466710082][/DOUBLEPOST]
