Hello all,
I did a LCA analysis by Mplus. I got nine groups in all according to the lower BIC value. However, there are only 1% cases in a certain group. So my question is what kind of criteria could be used to reduce or recombine the groups.

You have to ask yourself if all classes have a distinctly different interpretation, substantively. If so, you may want to keep even a 1% class.
