cohend -- Calculates Cohen's d, Hedges' g, and the effect size (ES) correlation > (r) corrected for uneven group size.


cohend varname groupvar


cohend computes Cohen's d, Hedges' g, and effect size (ES) correlations (r) for the two variables specified in varlist. The first variable specified should correspond to the dependent variable, and the second variable should correspond to the grouping variable. These values are calculated from the equations specified in Rosnow, Rosenthal, and Rubin (2000).

The command also displays the effect size corrected for uneven group size. This should be used when the difference in cell size between the two groups is large. The corrected version of Cohen's d is calculated from equation 14, Hedges' g from equation 13, and ES r from equation 15 in Rosnow et al. (2000).
