I have run a number of LCAs with covariates and determined that a 3-class solution is the "best." I understand that MPlus makes the last class the reference group. How do I change this so that either the 1st or 2nd class (or group) is the reference group?

You can do this by using the ending values for the class that you want last as the starting values of the last class.

I recent Mplus versions you get results for all possible reference classes automatically in most model situations.
