I have currently specified a structurally equivalent 3 latent class model for 3 groups (using dummy variables for the groups) with the syntax:
Analysis: type= mixture; starts=1000 100;
Model: %overall% class ON dummy2 dummy3;
Can anyone advise how can I specify exactly the same model using syntax for class specific statements e.g. some form of
class#1 on dummy2 dummy3 class#2 on dummy2 dummy3 class#3 on dummy2 dummy3
My motivation for doing so is that I wish to force class#3 to be a group-specific class with members from only one of the groups, and no members from the other two groups ie 2 groups have the same 2 classes, and the 3rd group has these two classes plus an additional one. Any help would be appreciated!
