One of our goals is to make statistics easy & simple to understand. As such, data visualization is one of our specialized services at Balcostics Research. With the recent launch of our YouTube Channel, Balcostics Ed, we’re transitioning from infographics to animations & illustrations to present data & information in an even more creative format.

The animated video below (showing the Top 5 male & Female dancehall artists on YouTube & Instagram) is the first in our fun stats series of animation and illustration videos. We hope you find the information interesting and insightful.

Our entertainers play a significant role in our culture and the development of Jamaica. Please support your favorite male & female artists by subscribing to their YouTube Channel or Following them on Instagram.

Note 1: Establish Artists = 5 years or more since first hit song.

Note 2: Young Artists = less than 3 years since first hit song
