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.
