I need to do an ordered latent class analysis (OLCA).

I have 5 indicators. Four of them are dummies and the last one is continuous. The latent variable I'm trying to model has three ORDERED latent classes -- prefrail, frail and non-frail individuals. Can I do that with Mplus?

Since I do not have a lot of experience with Mplus, it would be very helpful, if you could give me some details on the command I need to use.

Thanks

Mplus uses a nominal categorical latent variable. This can result in ordered or unordered classes.
