Dear Linda/Bengt, I see from your handouts that changing the reference category in an LCA is done by setting the intended normative class' starting values to zero using item means. For example, for class #1 in your NLSY example, [property$1-goods$1*0];
How can this be done in a CFA mixture model, where I have a CFA with a latent class variable predicting the CFA's factors? Which variables' starting values would I change - would it be the factors?
