I am doing a LCA choice analysis and based on the results I have 3 segments. I have a number of covariates but most of them seem to be not significant. Should I then delete them from the model and re-estimate?

Should I look at the Wald or the Z-score to see whether these covariates are significant?

Thank you for your time.

I would not delete covariates that are not significant. I would report this. Using the z-scores given in the results is fine.
