2018 Olympic Ranking Index
The Olympic Ranking Index (the Index) is a product of Sport Canada, based on data collected and compiled through the Sport Tracking, Assessment, and Technical Statistics (STATS) database.
The Index offers a system to determine Canada’s annual ranking on the basis of their aggregate results across all Senior World Championships and Olympic Games that occurred over a four-year period. The Index provides a fair, consistent and objective foundation to track, compare and evaluate a nation’s overall performance over time.
A number of indicators are used: gold medal count, medal count, medal points, top 5 count, top 5 points, top 8 count, and top 8 points. These indicators help produce three indices: Combined Olympic Ranking Index, Summer Olympic Ranking Index and Winter Olympic Ranking Index
