LCAs: Construct a poset of latent class analysis models.

Description Arguments Value

Description

Creates an object representing a collection of latent class analysis models. There is one model for each fixed number of latent classes from 1 to some specified maximum. In particular each model is identified by a single number specifiying the number of latent classes in the model. Models are naturally ordered by inclusion so that, for example, a model with 2 latent classes comes before a model with 3 or more latent classes.

Arguments

maxNumClasses

the number of classes in the largest LCA model to considered.

numVariables

the number of observed variables.

numStatesForVariables

the number of states for each observed variable, at the moment these must all be equal.

phi

parameter controlling the strength of the sBIC penalty.

Value

An object representing the collection.
