Earlier studies on the association between health systems' economic performance and public satisfaction were based on between-countries comparisons. This approach can be challenged as it ignores the fact that subjective measures like 'satisfaction' might be relative. Cohort analysis is a way of dealing with this issue as it focuses on within-countries comparisons. The association between change in satisfaction with health care systems and change in economic performance, determined by an output-orientated constant returns to scale DEA Malmquist model over the period 1995 to 2000/2002 using OECD data, is explored. The results show that a health care systems' economic performance is not associated with public satisfaction.
