This is used to be true. That API feature is gone now. They pulled all historical data before it was gone. New videos have estimations based on the users using their software.

Are you sure? It looks like it's still there (see statistics.dislikeCount under https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs/videos#resource-representation )

of course, I wouldn't necessarily be surprised if the docs are out of date

edit: saw the other comment explaining it doesn't work for new videos
