New LCA Software: Bootstrap and Distal Outcomes

May 31, 2016:

We are pleased to release two new functions that augment the functionality of the LCA Stata plugin. The LCA Bootstrap Stata function allows users to perform the bootstrap likelihood ratio test in order to choose the number of classes for their latent class model. The LCA Distal Stata function allows users to estimate the association between a latent class variable and a binary distal outcome using a model-based approach. Both functions require the LCA Stata plugin version 1.2.1 or higher and Stata version 11 or higher. For SAS users, the LCA Distal SAS macro and LCA Bootstrap SAS macro have both been updated with small functional tweaks or bug fixes.
