Good evening, I am considering running a LPA using 7 scales (each with apprx. 5 items). In the literature I've reviewed I've seen examples where others have used the scale scores, rather than the individual items as class indicators, but none have provided the rationale for doing so. I am hoping someone here might be willing and able to help.

Thanks in advance.

I suggest posting this on SEMNET where I believe they have been discussing this recently.
