# Computes Group Sizes, Group Membership and Individual Posterior Classification Probabilities

### Description

Computes (estimates) group sizes, group membership and individual posterior classification probabilities based on
the outcome of a specificed MCMC run of either `mcClust`

, `mcClustExtended`

,
`dmClust`

or `dmClustExtended`

as well as `MNLAuxMix`

.

### Usage

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 | ```
calcAllocationsMCC(outList, thin = 1, maxi = 50,
M0 = outList$Mcmc$M0, plotPathsForEta = TRUE)
calcAllocationsMCCExt(outList, thin = 1, maxi = 50,
M0 = outList$Mcmc$M0)
calcAllocationsDMC(outList, thin = 1, maxi = 50,
M0 = outList$Mcmc$M0, plotPathsForEta = TRUE)
calcAllocationsDMCExt(outList, thin = 1, maxi = 50,
M0 = outList$Mcmc$M0)
calcAllocationsMNL(outList, thin = 1, maxi = 50,
M0 = outList$Mcmc$M0)
``` |

### Arguments

`outList` |
specifies a list containing the outcome (return value) of an MCMC run of |

`thin` |
An integer specifying the thinning parameter (default is 1). |

`maxi` |
specifies the number of draws to be actually taken (after thinning) from the MCMC draws beginning from the end of the
chain (default is 50), except for mixing proportions/weights |

`M0` |
specifies the number of the first MCMC draw after burn-in (default is |

`plotPathsForEta` |
If |

### Details

The last `maxi`

MCMC draws of each `thin`

-th draw are taken for calculations, except for mixing
proportions *η* (which are part of MCC and DMC *without* MNL extension) where *all* `thin`

-th
draws beginning at `M0`

are used.

### Value

A list containing:

`estGroupSize ` |
A vector of dimension |

`class ` |
A vector of length |

`classProbs ` |
A matrix with dimension |

### Note

The last `maxi`

MCMC draws of each `thin`

-th draw are taken for calculations, except for mixing
proportions *η* (which are part of MCC and DMC *without* MNL extension) where all `thin`

-th draws
beginning at `M0`

are used.

Note, that in contrast to the literature (see **References**), the numbering (labelling) of the states of the
categorical outcome variable (time series) in this package is sometimes *0,...,K* (instead of
*1,...,K*), however, there are *K+1* categories (states)!
