    How to handle poor reporting unstandardised\standardized coefficients?




    Hi,

    I have several times problem how to distinguish what is reported in clinical journals in relation to regression analysis. Frequently authors do not clearly state what they report unstandardized or standardized coefficients? It is OK when you have intercept so you know what is reported but even that is not the case very often. So my question is how I can be sure with this kind of insufficient reporting when they report standardized and when unstandardized coefficients?

    Thanks in advance!

    could you re-calculate them from some of the other information present in the data?

    for example, even if they don't say if the coefficients are standardized/unstandardized you could obtain them through the correlation (or covariance) matrix of the data if they do report that.
