For the 109 sports events a total of 327 medals were awarded: 110 gold medals, 108 silver medals, and 109 bronze medals. These numbers are inequal, because two gold medals and no silver medals were awarded in the lightweight category of weightlifting, after a first place tie in the event. The athletes of 33 different countries won one or more medals, leaving 13 countries wihout medals. The most medals (56) and the most gold medals (22) were won by athletes from the United States.

The countries are ranked by the number of gold medals won by the athletes of that country. If countries are tied, first the number of silver medals is taken into consideration and then the number of bronze medals. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.

Arts competition

The ranking of the arts competition is based on the official report "The Ninth Olympiad" (1928) of the Dutch National Olympic Committee.

For the 13 arts events a total of 29 medals were awarded: 9 golden medals, 10 silver medals, and 10 bronze medals. These numbers are inequal, because not for all events three medals were awarded. There was only a silver medal awarded for dramatic works in literature and only a bronze medal for composition for orchestra in music. And also in music, no medals were awarded for compositions for song and composition for one instrument. The most medals (8) were won by contestants from Germany, the most gold medals (2) were won by contestants from the Netherlands.

The countries are ranked by the number of gold medals won by the athletes of that country. If countries are tied, first the number of silver medals is taken into consideration and then the number of bronze medals. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.

The host country (the Netherlands) is highlighted in lavender blue and the greatest number of medals in each medal category (gold, silver, bronze, and total) is in boldface.
