Do Between-Culture Differences Really Mean that People Are Different? A Look at Some Measures of Culture Effect Size.
Matsumoto, David; Grissom, Robert J.; Dinnel, Dale L.
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v32 n4 p478-90 Jul 2001
Recommends four measures of cultural effect size appropriate for cross-cultural research (standardized difference between two sample means, probabilistic superiority effect size measure, Cohen's U1, and point biserial correlation), demonstrating their efficacy on two data sets from previously published studies and arguing for their use in future cross-cultural research as a complement to traditional tests of mean differences.
