Individualized : A sensitivity/correction factor helps to answer that question. It is different from one person to the next and varies also based on resistance to insulin. It may also vary for an individual depending on time of day. If you're carb counting, that info is estimated based on your own Insulin requirements. Your diabetes team is the best resource for this information.
