I have a large group randomized trial (pre-post design) where the
randomization was marginally successful.  Given the pre-existing
differences among groups, it makes sense to report adjusted means (aka
least squares means though I estimated them via predictions from lme
rather than lm).

I would like to report effect sizes (Cohen's d) calculated as:


Can anyone provide advice on what would be a reasonable value to use for
the variance estimate in the equation?

Any other thoughts on how to calculate effect sizes on adjusted mean
