Adjusted Means, a.k.a. Least Squares Means
Gerard E. Dallal, Ph.D.

Means that have been corrected for imbalances in other variables are called adjusted means. The phrase least squares means was used in place of adjusted means by the statistical program package SAS. SAS is so widely used and highly respected that least squares means has begun to replace adjusted means in the applied scientific literature, Call me a traditionalist. I prefer adjusted means.
