Good day!

What is the best sample size for a latent profile analyses and what articles can I read about statistical power and LPA?
I will get a sample size of 160-180 abuse men for LPA. Is there a recommended sample size for latent profile analyses?
And how many do I set the best indicators for a unconditional model in LPA?
I set just one scale(total 43 items) for indicators..is that set enough?....

Thank you for giving me your time.

(About LPA.... continue)

I explain my Indicator variable which are
FPS(Fathering Practices Scale), seven-categories, 43 item, and repondents use a 5-point scale.

Is that possible as indicator variables in unconditional model for LPA?
How many indicator variables are appropriate to set? Is there a relation of sample size when setting a indicator variables? I can collect sample size just maximum 160. Could you recommand what should be note when setting indicator varibales?

Thank you~~

SEMNET is a better forum for these general design questions. See also our website under Papers, Latent Class Analysis.
