2 Standing Ordinal ranking of the countries based on medals per 1 million population (MPM Value).

3 MPM Index (Medals per Million Index) An index showing the relative differences between medals per 1 million population. The country with the fewest medals per population is given an index of 1. A country with twice the medals per million is given a ranking of 2, etc.

4 MPM Value Medals per 1 million population, rounded to 2 decimals. Hover over it to view the unrounded number. Divide by 1 million to get medals per capita.
