The %LCA_Distal SAS macros estimate the association between a latent class variable and a distal outcome. Both macros require PROC LCA (version 1.3.2 or higher) and SAS (version 9.1 or higher).
NOTE: We recommend using the LCA_Distal_BCH macro and offer the LCA_Distal_LTB macro only for methodological research.

Features of the LCA_Distal_BCH macro
- requires simple, minimal syntax
- estimates class-specific probabilities and standard errors for binary and categorical distal outcomes
- estimates means and standard errors for count and continuous distal outcomes
- accommodates distal outcomes for multiple groups
