VarSelLCM-package: Variable Selection for Model-Based Clustering of Mixed-Type...

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

Model-based clustering with variable selection and estimation of the number of clusters. Data to analyze can be continuous, categorical, integer or mixed. Moreover, missing values can occur and do not necessitate any pre-processing. Shiny application permits an easy interpretation of the results.

Package: VarSelLCM
Type: Package
Version: 2.1.1

LazyLoad: yes

The main function to use is VarSelCluster. Function VarSelCluster carries out the model selection (according to AIC, BIC or MICL) and maximum likelihood estimation.

Function VarSelShiny runs a shiny application which permits an easy interpretation of the clustering results.

Function VarSelImputation permits the imputation of missing values by using the model parameters.

Tool methods summary, print and plot are also available for facilitating the interpretation.
