Podcast: Latent Class Analysis (LCA) Part 1: Common Questions about LCA
November 26, 2012
In our latest podcast, Methodology Center scientists Stephanie Lanza and Bethany Bray and host Aaron Wagner discuss common, practical issues that arise in latent class analysis (LCA). Issues include selecting indicator variables, selecting a model, determining the necessary sample size, finding LCA software, and getting started in LCA. This is the first in a two-part podcast; the next podcast will address some of our recent research on LCA.
