    La présente étude se propose d'analyser les bénéfices acquis à l'usage des services publics dans les secteurs de la santé et de l'éducation au Cameroun. Plus spécifiquement il s'agit: (i) d'évaluer la part du budget réellement acquis; (ii) de déterminer le contenu équité du bénéfice acquis; (iii) de quantifier la satisfaction à l'usage des services publics; et (iv) d'établir la corrélation entre satisfaction et bien-être des ménages. L'analyse est basée essentiellement sur l'évaluation des incidences moyenne et marginale, de même que sur l'étude de la progressivité des bénéfices. Les résultats indiquent que les dépenses publiques de fonctionnement des centres de santé intégré (CSI sont pro-pauvres et celles des hôpitaux de référence (hôpitaux centraux et hôpitaux généraux) régressives. Pourtant, un accroissement des dépenses dans les CSI les rendrait plus attrayants. Les dépenses pour l'enseignement primaire sont pro-pauvres et celles relatives au supérieur pro-riches. Tout accroissement des dépenses au primaire n'est capté que marginalement par les individus à revenu intermédiaire; l'accroissement des dépenses publiques d'éducation secondaire contribue significativement aux parts de bénéfices réels des différentes couches, notamment ceux à revenu intermédiaire supérieur.
