The Methodology Center is pleased to release the latest version (1.1) of the LCA Stata plugin for conducting latent class analysis (LCA). The software is available for download free of charge. For an overview of the functionality of the LCA Stata plugin, please visit the download page. The new version includes functionality requested in our recent software survey, including
- the ability to assess identification of models with covariates via multiple random starts,
- an indication of which latent class is the best match for each individual, and
- the option to generate 20 random draws for each individual’s class membership based on posterior probabilities.
The users’ guide has also been updated and revised based on user feedback. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
