These models include example Mplus code. Mplus and its corresponding documentation is available at www.statmodel.com. Note that we recommend the “combination add-on” version.
LCA: Baseline LCA with all binary indicators
This code fits a 4-class, baseline, latent-class model for marijuana use and attitudes using 7 binary indicators of the latent class variable. This code also plots the item-response probabilities using a line graph.
LCA: LCA with a grouping variable and measurement invariance
This code fits a 4-class, latent-class model for marijuana use and attitudes using 7 binary indicators of the latent class variable. It includes a grouping variable for year, and observations came from 3 different years.
LPA: Baseline LPA with all continuous indicators
This code fits a 5-class, baseline, latent-profile model for the “Big 5” personality traits using 5 continuous indicators of the latent class variable.
LTA: Baseline LTA with 2 times, all binary indicators, and measurement invariance
This code fits a 2-time, 5-class, latent-transition model for delinquency over time using 6 binary indicators of the latent class variable. Measurement invariance across time is imposed such that analogous item-response probabilities within classes are restricted to be equal to each other across times.
