# Label switching algorithms for the case of missing data

### Description

This is a wrapper for the `label.switching`

package. It is used to post-process the generated MCMC sample in order to undo the label switching problem. This function is called internally to the `coupledMetropolis`

command.

### Usage

1 | ```
dealWithLabelSwitchingMissing(outDir, reorderModels, binaryData, z.true)
``` |

### Arguments

`outDir` |
The directory where the output of |

`reorderModels` |
Boolean value indicating whether to reorder the MCMC corresponding to each distinct generated value of number of clusters or not. |

`binaryData` |
The input data. |

`z.true` |
An optional vector of cluster assignments considered as the ground-truth clustering of the observations. Useful for simulations. |

### Details

See the `label.switching`

package.
