Hi- I am running a latent variable mixture model that yields 2 classes from 8 indicators. The output provides the odds ratio comparing the classes on each indicator.
How would I calculate the confidence intervals to know which odds ratios are significantly different from one another? Is this in the output somewhere? Or is there a formula to calculate CI from SE in odds ratios?
what is the formula to calculate the confidence interval for an odds ratio? which distribution does this follow?? And is an 'adjusted odds rato' different from odds ratio?
Thank you very much.

These are given in the Hosmer and Lemeshow logistic regression book cited on the website or other logistic regression books. Essentially, these build on the lower and upper confidence interval limits for the logistic regression coefficients(log odds) which are then exponentiated to give you the corresponding odds. An adjusted odds ratio is an odds ratio for a binary x variable where you have other x variables in the logistic regression.
How would I calculate the odd ratios confidence intervals in MULTINATIONAL LOGISTIC REGRESSION whereby imputation is used. without imputation CINTERVALS in the OUTPUT command yields the CI. why MPLus dont give the CI with imputation.
I'm running an LCA with 2 classes and I'm interested in obtaining 95% confidence intervals for the item-response probabilities and latent class probabilities. I know that I can add the CINTERVAL option to the output. However, can you describe how to obtain 95% confidence intervals for the latent class probabilities, since these are means rather than thresholds? I know only one class has an estimated parameter and the other class is the complement, so I'm unsure how to obtain the confidence intervals for both classes. Any references/resources that you could share would be helpful too. Thanks!
I am having difficulty calculating the CI for the ORs of DCAT output. I am using the formula as noted in the document in the FAQ section 'logOR ± 1.96*SE(logOR). Then exponentiate those two limits to get the OR limits'
The problem is either that the CI does not contain the OR and\or that it is indicating a significant result when the p value is highly insignificant or vice versa. Here is an example.
Comorbidities - Est= 0.029 SE=0.068 p=0.673 OR= log(OR) of 0.029 = 1.03 CI = 0.029+\- 1.96*0.068 = (0.16, 0.10) exp CI (1.11, 1.18)
So as you can see the OR is not within the CI and the CI is in conflict with the p value. Am I doing something incorrectly or have I missed something? thank you
