I forgot to include this question in my last thread.

In order for our model with outcome variables to converge, we needed to set starting values and threshold estimates that we'd gotten from our LCA. However, we were getting slightly different numbers in the classes. Is there a way in the Mplus syntax to also set the N's for the different classes?

Thanks again!

You can give starting values to the means of the categorical latent variable using the bracket construction:

[c#1*value];
