Olympics v Paralympics

I have compiled a score table based on all countries that won more than 10 Olympic medals. The score is the number of paralympic medals divided by olympic medals for each country. I guess the idea is to show the most equitable countries regarding disabilities. Of course this is hugely flawed but it makes interesting reading.

Rank Country Score
1 Canada 6.00
2 Poland 5.40
3 Spain 3.74
4 Brazil 3.30
5 Great Britain 3.24
6 Ukraine 2.39
7 France 2.24
8 China 2.24
9 Australia 2.04
10 Belarus 1.93
11 Germany 1.65
12 Japan 1.41
13 Netherlands 1.27
14 Greece 1.25
15 Hungary 1.00
16 United States 0.85
17 Italy 0.58
18 Russia 0.45
19 Cuba 0.41
20 Turkey 0.20
