The %SimulateLcaDataset macro can assist in studying the performance of latent class analysis (LCA) models. It works in conjunction with the SAS software package (version 9.1 or higher) and PROC LCA (version 1.2.5 or higher). %SimulateLcaDataset generates a random dataset from a population assumed to be described by the LCA model with a given set of parameters.
