Hi, I would like to perform a joint latent class analysis (according to Proust-Lima et al., 2013) in that I want to identify latent risk classes (patterns of at-risk criteria) for psychosis over time using latent class mixed models for the longitudinal data and combine it with a survival analysis for the relationship of these latent risk classes with time-to-event data (i.e. conversion to psychosis). Patients have been assessed at baseline, after 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 months if they fulfill several at-risk criteria (binary) and if they converted to psychosis (binary outcome). As I have just started working with Mplus and only have R codes for similar models, I would like to kindly ask you if you could recommend any paper or example to get familiar with this kind of modelling using Mplus? Thank you very much and all the best! V
If you are looking to do growth mixture modeling jointly with discrete-time survival analysis I can send you an Mplus script I have used. If you are interested in continuous-time survival with growth mixtures you will find our paper on that topic on our website.
