The paper estimates rates of return to schooling in Rawalpindi, Pakistan in the Becker-Mincer framework. The estimates show that the rates of return are significantly different across work-status categories with the self-employed obtaining a lower return than the employed. Consequently, pooling of the two subsamples from LDCs--as is often done in similar exercises --is incorrect. Nevertheless, the estimates, especially those for the employed, compare favorably with those from other countries.
