The dimension value is an ISO 3166-2 code that identifies a U.S. state or the District of Columbia, such as US-MI (Michigan) or US-TX (Texas).

The API supports the following values: 002 Africa, 019 Americas (Northern America, Latin America, South America, and the Caribbean), 142 Asia, 150 Europe, 009 Oceania. This dimension can only be used to filter data.
SubContinent String True (filter only) A U.N. statistical region code that identifies a geographical subregion.

Data for this metric is not available for dates before October 1, 2014.
VideosRemovedFromPlaylists Double False True The number of times that videos were removed from the video owner playlist and other YouTube playlists like the Watch Later playlist.
