I am trying to find examples of how to specify in Mplus the following 3 step approaches to using covariates in LCA: most likely class regression, probability regression and probability-weighted regression. For example, supposing I have 4 latent classes and wish to explore the relationship between class and age.
I have found the following example based on an initial 4 class run:
Variable: names are age cprob1 cprob2 cprob3 cprob4 class; usevariables are age cprob1 cprob2 cprob3 cprob4; CLASSES = C (4); TRAINING= cprob1-cprob4 (PROBABILITIES); ANALYSIS: TYPE = MIXTURE; STARTS 100 10; MODEL: %OVERALL% c#1 ON age; c#2 ON age; c#3 ON age;
