Statistics on the yokozuna no. 35-40:

Note: The statistics of the following yokozuna refer to a time with less than 6 basho/year, and (partial) before the current 15 bouts/basho standard (before 1949/5), so the details of the following statistics differ somewhat from the one before.
 
Furthermore, it was 1947/6, when the first kettei-sen took place, before in case of a win/loss tie on senshuraku the highest ranked rikishi won the yusho.
 
Note also, that it was not before 1951, that yokozuna was the only official highest rank in banzuke, before it was actually equal to the ozeki ranks, with some certain "yokozuna-ozekis".

Statistics on the yokozuna no. 16-21:

Note: The first year the title "Yokozuna" appeared in the banzuke was 1890, when this title was given to Nishinoumi I in the May basho.
 
However, he then was ranked actually at Haridashi-Ozeki, that means there were at least two Ozeki above him in the official banzuke. So "Yokozuna" still was just a honory title rather than an official banzuke rank.
 
It was not before February 1909 when Yokozuna was adopted as the highest rank or "saiko-ichi", but (until 1950) still along with Ozeki, changed from the "highest level" or "saikokyu".
