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.
