It were applied the Chow structural test and decomposition of Oaxaca, and Heckman procedure. It was used data from the National Research by House Sample at 2006. The theoric approach was based on the Theory of Human Capital and Theory of Segmentation Labor Market.

Finally in the States that have highest Gross Domestic Product the regional effects were more important factors for explaining the differences for labor earnings among of MR and NMR.
