Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games: Medal strike rate

Traditional medal tables rank countries by the number of medals won. Statistics New Zealand offers a different perspective.

While New Zealand doesn’t generally do as well in the Winter Olympics as in the summer games, many New Zealand residents were born in a country that does do well in winter sports. So this time we are showing 2013 Census information about the number of people who listed their birth country as one of the medal-winning countries at Sochi.

We are updating this table on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the Winter Olympics.

For birthplace, and a wide range of other 2013 Census information, such as cigarette smoking, languages spoken, income, and main means of travel to work, see 2013 Census totals by topic.
