-pbalchk- by Mark Lunt ("findit") will compute standardized differences.

And, Sarah, our favorite program is spelled "Stata", not "STATA". Unlike "SAS", "SPSS", and "SUDAAN", "Stata" is not an acronym; it is not formed from letters of other words.* See the end of the Statalist FAQ:

* The original names of SAS, SPSS, and SUDAAN were "Statistical Analysis System" "Statistical Package for the Social Sciences", and "SUrvey Design And Analysis", respectively. SAS and SPSS dropped the long names some time ago.

Dear Statalist,

As a method of calculating the balance of a propensity score model (without using imbalance), I was wondering if there was a way to use STATA to calculate standardized differences among treatment and non-treatment conditions? I have both continuous and binary variables, and I've found various papers with numerous formulas, but was wondering if anyone had a more concrete recommendation? 

Thanks,
Sarah
