I have spent so much time trying to find out how to calculate an effect size for linear mixed models, but still success evades me. I am an avid SPSS user. Given the mixed model limitation in SPSS and lack of my success, I finally decided to transition to SAS in hopes of possibly overcoming this problem with the effect size. Is there anyone who has any clue how to calculate an effect size for lognitudinal linear mixed models with complex covariance structures like ARH1, ante(1), AR(1), etc?
Here is a sample code:
proc mixed data = sas.aLTP covtest scoring=5; class dose Mouse Time; model ln_aLTP = dose cTime cTime*cTime / solution ddfm=sat influence; repeated Time /type=ante(1) subject=mouse; random int cTime / subject = mouse type = arh(1) solution g v; lsmeans dose /adjust=dunnett pdiff=control('4') CL; run;
I am aware of this thread for Cohen's d in proc mixed, which did not generate a solid resolution.
I'm also aware of this paper: A practical guide to calculating Cohen’s f2, a measure of local effect size, from PROC MIXED, but that covers only the simplest covariance structures. I have emailed various authors and still have not found a practical solution. So I'm wondering if any SAS users have somehow overcome this issue, since the community is large.
Some more specific questions to guide the discussion:

The reference to marginal variance likely refers to proc glimmix not proc mixed, but that's ok, both will estimate your models.
for an example of specifying, exporting and calculating other statistics from proc glimmix covariance estimate output.
