Liquid scintillator efficiency

Dear Fluka experts,
     I am analyzing the efficiency of a neutron scintillator; I
consider several energies of the neutron beam against the detector,
then score the proton spectrum at the region of the detector and
convert it into light output (MeVee); at this step how can I proceed
to calculate the detector efficiency? Is it correct to compute it as
number of neutrons from the initial beam divided by number of protons
(integral of the spectrum for the specific neutron energy). If this
is true, how can I know the numerator from the simulations?
I provide my input file in attachement and ask also if , for this
problem, the input cards NEWDEFA and EMFCUT are the proper ones.
Thank you for your attention,
