The purpose of this paper is to estimate the level and distribution of households' human capital in Iran. Using the combined Dagum approach and the latent variable techniques, the paper estimates the effects of social and economic variables on human capital in Iranian provinces. The empirical results show that the biggest and the smallest significant effects on households' human capital correspond respectively to the households income and marital status. The paper also shows that the 37 and
41 year-old individuals have the highest level of human capital in Iran.
