Cluster Analysis: MCHB's EnRICH Webinar Series

Monday, April 23, 2012
3:00pmET - 4:15pmET
Location: Webinar

This webinar will be focused on latent class cluster analyses (LCCA). LCCA is a model based cluster analysis method used to identify subtypes of related cases (latent classes) from categorical, ordinal, and continuous multivariate data. It provides a way of identifying latent segments (types) for which parameters in a specified model differ.
