Abstract

At the micro level, economists seek to understand and interpret the decision making process of individuals for investment in human capital, as well as the many factors that can influence this process. On the other hand, the economics of education is concerned with the impacts of individual choices on trends in the labor market. This paper try to find an implementation of a new estimate of the rate of return to education with the incorporation of new variables in the Mincerian model in the context of segmented labor market applied to the case of Tunisia. This study was supported by a questionnaire with one hundred individuals of the Tunisian workforce that was developed during the months of January and February 2012.
