I am investigating the development and heterogeneity of seven binary indicators. While the three class solution runs very well and also makes some sense, I have not been succesful to run a four or higher class solution. Here are my questions: 1) Do the same rules as in LCA analysis apply to determine the maximum number of classes?
2) On what scale are the mean and slope of the individual classes?
3) What does a negative mean of 10 mean for a specific class?
4) In order to draw the development in the different classes, does the same computational rule apply: mean + (slope * timescore) by class?
