Hello Dr. Muthen, I have been working on some LPA analyzes and for one solution in the output I get this message
"288 perturbed starting value run(s) did not converge in the initial stage optimizations." However, I am not sure what does that mean? and whether or not I am able to use that solution. Meaning, can I ignore that message given that the model estimation terminated normally?

Thanks for your assistance.

You can ignore that message if you have replicated the best loglikelihood value several times.
