Country ranking
Google/translate3Thank You!2Good Post!1Bad Post! link
I was thinking about a new calculation for country ranking, besides total score, average, and sumtop3.

It is like (totalscore/(country population))*some_constant_so_the_result_will_be_more_than_1

What do you think, does it makes sense?
Giz: is it possible to do that?

Z, are you trying to normalize scores against the total population of a country?

You'd end up with a per capita hack score, which would interesting so see. I'd vote for it. The only hard part-- tedious, really-- would be tracking down population figures the various countries.

.... um... I stand corrected-- https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/rawdata_2119.text Smile That should be pretty easily parsable.

Yepp, that's what I've suggested Smile
