I am reading the article : Muthen, B. (1998). Second-generation structural equation modeling with a combination of categorical and continuous latent variables: New opportunities for latent class/latent growth modeling.
and at the same time I am learning from the imput and the output from Mplus web site. I would like to ask you few questions. From penn8, 1)How to get Table 10.3: Probality of dependence Given Class? For example, how to calculate P(Dep| c=1) =.20 2)What is the meaning of : a) Intercepts C#1 -2.461 0.311 -7.906 0.000 C#2 -3.379 0.595 -5.681 0.000
Hi Dr Muthen, Thank you for your answer it was very helpful. Today my question is about Local maxima in mixture modeling. What can we do with a local maximum problem. I have already incresed the number of starts (from 50 to 500), but I still have this message:
WARNING: THE BEST LOGLIKELIHOOD VALUE WAS NOT REPLICATED. THE SOLUTION MAY NOT BE TRUSTWORTHY DUE TO LOCAL MAXIMA. INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RANDOM STARTS.
