    NOTES:

    The table and comments on this page are based on data provided by the Nobel Foundation for all prizes awarded from its inception in 1901 until and including 2009.

    The calculation for each country takes into account the name, or names, of the country or countries associated with every individual prize winner. A Nobel prize is often split between several individuals.

    To calculate the number of prizes for a country, I added all occurrences of the country's name in all Nobel awards. So, if one prize was awarded to (split between) 3 individuals, two of whom area associated with the United States, then, for this prize, the US is given two points in the table. If the third individual was associated with, say, Germany, and one of the previously mentioned 2 is associated with Germany AND the US, then Germany would receive 2 points in this table.

    In other words, fractional prizes are awarded whole points for the purposes of this ranking table, and multiple country associations of a winning individual result in points for each of the associated countries. Consequently, the total number of points shown on this table exceeds the number of prizes awarded by the Nobel Foundation.

    - Germany 1 = Germany after unification + West Germany before unification.

    - Germany 2 = Germany after unification only.

    - West Germany = the Federal Republic of Germany before unification.

    - International = International organizations, such as the International Red Cross, and agencies the United Nations Organization.

    - USSR, the former Soviet Union, was dissolved in December 1991.
