Please note: The medallists data is based on information contained/sourced in the original hardcopy final results publications. Some information from earlier Paralympic Games (ie 1960 - 1984) such as relay and team members are not presented in these sources and therefore, this table may not be complete. Here "participation" means the appearance in the official results books and not the registration before the Games. Unknown team members in relays or team sports (eg basketball) are not counted.
1In some editions of the Paralympic Games, those athletes whose gender could not be clearly identified from the source information are registered as 'x' based on their participation in mixed events.
