Abstract: This paper compares different types of profitability
measures of cooperative banks from two developed regions: the European Union and the United States of America together with Canada. We created balanced dataset of more than 200 cooperative banks covering 2011-2016 period. We made series of tests and run
Random Effects estimation on panel data. We found that American and Canadian cooperatives are more profitable in terms of return on assets (ROA) and return on equity (ROE). There is no significant
difference in net interest margin (NIM). Our results show that the North American cooperative banks accommodated better to the current market
