Latent Class/Profile Analysis

2018 Latent Class Analysis Workshop

$600 USD for Professionals (faculty, postdoctoral, research scientists)

$500USD for Students

Three Day workshop

July 30th, 31st, and August 1st, 2018

10 am to 3pm each day

All times are Eastern Standard Time zone (New York) in the USA

What is covered?

  • Day 1 we will cover
    • What is latent class analysis?
    • Differences with other techniques
    • Latent class versus latent profile analysis
    • Why are researchers using this technique?
    • How does this move my research forward?
    • Technical issues related to:
    • Identifying the number of classes
  • Day 2 we will cover
    • Predictors of class membership (covariates)
    • Outcomes across classes (distal outcomes)
  • Day 3 we will cover
    • Different approaches including:
      • One step, 3-step, classify/analyze
    • Tricks and shortcuts

This workshop is designed for researchers with some knowledge of statistics who are wanting to learn more about latent class analysis using Mplus. There is more focus on real-world data applications and less focus on statistics.

Each day’s schedule

10 - 11:15

  • Presentation about the techniques involved in LCA/LPA

11:15-11:30 Break and Q&A (question/answer period)

11:30 - 12:30

  • Using Mplus and features when doing LCA/LPA

12:30 - 1:00 Break and Q&A

1:00 - 2:00 Mplus demonstrations

  • Syntax files
  • Examining output
  • How to actually do specific analyses
  • Reading output and making sense of all the statistics

2:00 - 3:00 Practice and “lab” time

  • For participants using their own data or using data I provide
  • Running analyses on your own, fixing errors, guided learning
  • Completing suggested exercises

What do people say about Andy’s workshops??

  • It was really helpful to have the share folder so we can see how you wrote the code and refer to the files when running our own analyses
  • Excellent for multiple levels of Mplus experience. As someone with zero experience, I was still able to follow along the slides, run analyses, and understand the output. I felt comfortable in the workshop even with experienced Mplus users as other participants.
  • Thank you for explaining things well. I enjoyed the breadth of topics covered, and the personal attention that Andy gave to each person’s needs/data.
  • I enjoyed that the powerpoint presentation was easy to follow. I also enjoyed the time we had for group work and one-on-one work with Dr. Supple.
  • really great workshop! I've been using spss for years but I feel like I know how to use mplus just as well if not better after only a week
  • Excellent workshop! I will tell others who are seeking a similar experience that this is the workshop to take. Well worth the effort, time, and money
  • I now feel more comfortable and understand why I get told I could do “so much more” with my data
