Each season consists of 25–30 competitions, usually two competitions on the same hill during a weekend. One competition consists of a qualifying round, first round and second round. The top 10 jumpers in FIS ranking qualify directly to the first round, while the rest of the jumpers fight for the remaining 40 spots. The top 30 men in the first round advance to the second round, which is held in reverse order, so the best jumper in the first round jumps last. The aggregate score in the first and second rounds determine the competition results. The top 30 are awarded World Cup points. The winner gets 100 points while number 30 receives 1 point. At team events only top 8 receive points.
Wins in this table for East Germany are counted together with Germany and wins for Czechoslovakia are counted together with Czech Republic. All of Yugoslavia's wins are currently lumped in with Slovenia, since the ski jumpers who won races for former Yugoslavia were all Slovenes from Slovenia (one of six Yugoslav Republics).
A total of 15 countries have a total 968 World Cup winners (men, women, men's team and mixed team), with 14 different countries winning men's races and 7 countries winning women's races.
