The 1984 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXIII Olympiad, were an international multi-sport event held in Los Angeles, California, United States, from 28 July to 12 August 1984. These Games had 6,829 athletes from 140 NOCs participating in a total of 221 events in 23 sports.[1] Athletes from 47 NOCs won medals, of which 25 secured at least a gold medal. The United States won 83 gold medals at the 1984 Summer Olympics, which is as of 2016, the record for most gold medals of any country in a single Summer Olympics.

The ranking in this table is based on information provided by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and is consistent with IOC convention in its published medal tables. By default, the table is ordered by the number of gold medals the athletes from a National Olympic Committee have won (a nation is represented at a Games by the associated National Olympic Committee). The number of silver medals is taken into consideration next and then the number of bronze medals. If NOCs are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically by IOC country code.

The number of bronze medals awarded was greater than either the gold or silver. This was due to a number of dead heats for third position, including the women's 100 meter hurdles and men's pole vault. Also, a second bronze medal was awarded for each of the boxing and judo events as there were no third/fourth position tiebreakers held.[2]

In the gymnastic events there were also several dead heats for gold medals, in the women's uneven bars and balance beam, as well as the men's rings. There was a four-way tie for second place in the men's vault resulting in four silver medals being handed out for a single event.[2]
