Bethany BrayJanuary 22, 2019

For our next 1 & 1 webinar, Methodology Center Associate Director Bethany Bray will present an introduction to latent class analysis (LCA). 1 & 1 workshops consist of a one-hour live video presentation on a method followed by a one-hour question-and-answer session with the presenter. The workshop will be held on Tuesday, February 26, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. ET. To join the webinar, click this link https://psu.zoom.us/j/781547900 when the webinar is starting. Registration in advance is not necessary.

Latent class analysis (LCA) allows researchers to identify unobservable (latent) subgroups within a population based on individuals’ responses to multiple observed variables. LCA can be used to understand the impact of exposure to patterns of multiple risks, as well as the antecedents and consequences of complex behaviors, so that interventions can be tailored to target the subgroups that will benefit most. Bethany’s talk will be introductory in nature, but questions of all levels of complexity are welcome during the Q & A.

The webinar can accommodate up to 500 participants, so all interested people should be able to attend. If you try to attend the workshop but are unable to log on for any reason, please send an email to mchelpdesk@psu.edu. We hope you will join us.
