combining means for multiple outcomes - one group

Hello,I am looking for a formula to combine multiple outcomes for one group. For example, some of the studies I'm including in my analysis give separate results for each subscale of the main outcome (e.g., aggression) for each group, and I need to combine their Means and Standard Deviations so that I get one outcome for each group.I have the formula for combining subgroups into one group (SStotal/Sum of n-1) but haven't found anything for combining means and SDs for one grp.Thank you very much!See More

"Because different subscales routinely have different SDs, the safest thing is to calculate a standardized mean difference effect size for each subscale and then average afterwards to form your aggregate. Some would argue that you could correct the…"
