Hello, I ran an LCA using the syntax below and while the model terminated just fine, when I go to view the plots I am only given the options of Histograms, Scatterplots, and Sample proportions and estimated probabilities. I have run a number of LPAs before and not had this problem and am not sure what to do to fix it. Here is the syntax:
variable: names are ID y1-y21; usevariables are y2-y21; CATEGORICAL = y2-y21; classes = c(3); missing is all (99); auxiliary=id ; Analysis: type = mixture; STARTS=100 10;
plot: type=plot3; series is y2(1) y3(2) y4(3) y5(4) y6(5) y7(6) y8(7) y9(8) y10(9) y11(10) y12(11) y13(12) y14(13) y15(14) y16(15) y17(16) y18(17) y19(18) y20(19) y21(20); savedata: file Initial3.txt; save is cprob; format is free; output: entropy tech11;
I found what I needed by selecting the plot "Sample proportions and estimated probabilities" then under "Line plot probabilities for multiple variables in a series" I selected "Plot sample proportions only." That worked out for me, hope it does the same for you!

I'm running a manual BCH LCA with a covariate and 4 distal outcomes.
I requested plot3 put am not getting "Estimated probabilities for a categorical latent variable as a function of its covariates".
All I'm getting is: Historgams (sample values) Scatterplots (sample values) Estimated overall and class-specific distributions
Is "Estimated ... covariates" not possible during BCH? I have seen the plot before on some preliminary models I have built.
