# Interpreting effect size

One of the most widely used interpretation of effect size is Cohen’s $d$, as follows:

• $<.10$: trivial
• $[.10,.30]$: small to medium
• $[.30,.50]$: medium to large
• $>.50$: large to very large

This appears to be the standard in psychology.

I am wondering if there is such a standard in sociology or social science in general?

I know the size of effect is best interpreted in the context of the research!
