SUMMARY

This paper estimates the private returns on investment in education. Annual rates of
return were estimated for the conglomerates in northeastern Argentina (NEA) between the third
term of 2003 and third term of 2009, using the basis of micro-data from the Permanent
Household Survey (EPH). In yield estimation were proposed models for men and women to
correct the sample bias problems evidenced in their low participation in the Economically
Active Population (PEA). The results show a higher return to education for men than for
women, a different yield in the agglomerate Posadas above average of NEA, a high penalty
function in the informal economy sector (black work) a direct relationship between company
size and yields of men at the same time would bring report less volatility in its temporal
evolution.

KEY WORDS: Human Capital Theory; Educational Achievement; Mincer Equation; Sampling Bias.
