I need to do the 3-step manual calculation (to take uncertainty of latent class assignment into account) comparing some variables among the latent classes (to see whether they differ in different latent classes).
Could you check whether I am doing it correctly? Thanks a lot!
C_all2 is most likely assignment from GMM.
CLASSES = c(3); !3 classes identified in GMM
Analysis: estimator = mlr; TYPE = MIXTURE; starts 50 20;
If you have a nominal variable as a covariate, you can create a set of dummy variables and use them as covariates. For an ordered categorical covariate, you can treat it as a continuous variable or create a set of dummy variables.
By putting a label at the end of
c#1 on dummy1 dummy2 (m1);
you are holding the regression coefficients of dummy 1 and dummy 2 equal. The z-test in the output tests if this coefficient is zero. I'm not sure what you are trying to do in MODEL TEST.
I want to use the 3-step procedure to compare mean scores of some variables between classes. I want to use this 3-step procedure to take into account the classification uncertainty (that is what it does, right?). I already performed GMM and have a 3-class solution. What is the correct input for an ANOVA to compare scores on a continuous variable (OCPD) between classes? Would it be something like this, because I keep receiving error messages.
