    This paper is divided in three parts. In the first one a four-equation structural form model is offered. It has earnings, weeks worked, education and bilingualism as dependent variables and will be used to explain the earnings of Quebec males in 1978. In the second part the data used, 3,576 men taken from a survey done for the Conseil de la langue française, are discussed. In the third part the results obtained through the use of O.L.S. and probit techniques are presented. They agree with our expectations. Ce texte se divise en trois parties. Dans la première partie, on y présente le modèle de forme structurelle à quatre équations retenu pour expliquer les revenus des hommes québécois en 1978. Les variables dépendantes sont le revenu de travail, le nombre de semaines travaillées, le niveau de scolarité et le bilinguisme. Dans la seconde partie on présente l’échantillon de 3 576 hommes tiré d’une enquête du Conseil de la langue française. Dans la troisième partie du texte on présente les résultats de l’estimation du modèle à l’aide des M.C.O. et du probit. Les résultats concordent avec nos attentes.
