Overview

The SAS %LCA_Distal macro estimates the association between a latent class variable and a distal outcome using a model-based approach. The %LCA_Distal macro works with PROC LCA and SAS, version 9.1 or higher.

 

Read about latent class analysis or latent transition analysis.

 


 

The %LCA_Distal macro provides a model-based approach to estimating the association between C and Z.Features:

  • requires simple, minimal syntax
  • estimates class-specific probabilities for binary and categorical distal outcomes
  • estimates means and modes for count and continuous distal outcomes
  • output includes class-specific conditional densities for continuous distal outcomes
  • accommodates distal outcomes for multiple groups
