Professor ...If I am not wrong, then we can not calculate SE while doing EM algorithm ... if you can explain us how does Mplus calculate SE while estimating a latent class model (I mean LCA) ....
I am expecting this question in my defense, as I have used Mplus to estimate my model
I have gone through your Biometrics paper (1999). You have mentioned about bootstrap SE at the begining of your paper. I have done simple EM (like in GAUSS and SPlus) without SE ... Precisely ...I am wondering how can I do EM as well as bootstraping simultaneously
is it kind of "imputation" thing ?
Thanks and regards

Read the McLachlan-Peel mixture book (Wiley) - you will see descriptions of getting SEs using the methods by Tom Louis and others.
