Calculate cohen´s d

I´d like to know how I can calculate cohen´s d (standardize difference) automatic from some procedure SAS. I look at proc tabulate, proc univariate and proc freq, but they don´t have such statistic.

I know that I can calculate it in a spreadsheet (using the mean and the st. deviation), but as I have a lot of variables under study, I´d like to use, for example, a proc tabulate and print the result automatic from SAS, as example below.
---------------------------------------------------------Innovators------------Non-innovators-------cohen´s d
Labor productivity (U$/employee)------------100.0---------------------50.0-------------------.83
.......and so on

Sincerely

Re: Calculate cohen´s d

Hi:
This seems more a statistical procedure question rather than an ODS and reporting procedure (PRINT, REPORT, TABULATE) question.

There is web page maintained by Tech support for Frequently Asked for Statistics. On that page I can find Cohen's Kappa and Somer's D statistics. I did not find Cohen's D:

http://support.sas.com/kb/30/333.html
http://support.sas.com/kb/30/333.html#kappa (frequently asked for statistics cohen's kappa)
http://support.sas.com/kb/30/333.html#somersd (somer's d)

Your best bet for help with this question is to contact SAS Technical Support. To send a question to Tech Support, go to http://support.sas.com/ and in the left-hand navigation pane, click on the link entitled "Submit a Problem".
