We've built "Country rankings" to improve user experience and productivity while using the platform.

These rankings allow us to add three 'sticky' groups at the top of specific dropdown menus. With Country rankings the user will be able to sort data more specifically in 'All countries', 'Top 25' and 'Top 50'.

Here is how they look now:

Method

To match the reality of the Music Industry, rather than a straight forward GDP ranking, we’ve sorted the groups using three indexes based on the information available per country:

  • When the information was available: by Music Retail Value
  • If there was no data for Music Retail Value: by Digital Music Retail Value
  • When no other information was available: by GDP

Finally, because most Charts have a Global (or WW) ranking, we have placed it as the #1 market in all our categories
