Counts/proportions for level-2 in ML ... PreviousNext

Dear professors,

I am running a two-level mixture model (repeated measurements on level-1 and persons on level-2) with the latent class on the between-level, and I would like to know the number of persons in each class. It seems that the "FINAL CLASS COUNTS AND PROPORTIONS" in the output concerns the number and proportions of level-1 observations, but since my design is unbalanced it is hard to know how many persons this is. Is there any way of getting these estimates?

You can use this code

[C#1] (a1);

model constraints:
new(p1); p1=1/(1+Exp(a1));

This will give you the model estimated class probability.

If you want to see the posterior probability for each person you can use

savedata: file=d.dat; save=cprob;

Thanks, but how do I interpret the p1 estimate? Is it the proportion of Level-2 clusters (persons in my case) belonging to class2 as opposed to class1?

Class 2.
