Graphing Nonlinear Relations Among Latent Variables from Structural Equation Mixture Models


Contains a graphical user interface to generate the diagnostic plots proposed by Bauer (2005) and Pek & Chalmers (2015) to investigate nonlinear latent variable interactions in latent regression models.

Creates plots which accompany Bauers (2005) semiparametric method of modeling Structural Equation Mixture Models (SEMMs) by allowing researchers to visualize potential nonlinear relationships between a latent predictor and outcome. Additionally, a graphical user interface (GUI) is available for interactive use and is found in the function plotSEMM_GUI.
