Intermediate Latent Class Analysis

This workshop focuses on more advanced elements of conducting latent class analysis. The major focus is on how to use starting values and manual 3-step procedures to do more advanced modeling involving latent classes. The topics covered include:

  • Using start values to order classes
  • Manual three-step approaches to retain classification uncertainty
  • Associations within-classes (class as a moderator)
  • Confirmatory LCA and multigroup LCA

This workshop is intended for those with familiarity with the basics of LCA and with knowledge of latent variables, mediation/moderation, and multigroup analyses.
