From the middle of the last century and until the present day, the study of the estimating of the returns to education remains one of the most important issues in the Economics of the labour market.

Using the Mincer wage equation on the basis of data from the Russian monitoring of economic situation and health of the population (RLMS – HSE), it is evaluated the impact of different levels of education across regions and years in Russia.
