Hi All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to wrap my brain around Latent Class Analysis (LCA). In the mean time, does anyone know how to test for goodness of fit and whether a given number of classes is somehow optimal? AFAIK, Log-Likelihood should decrease as a measure of improved fit when adding latent classes. Is this correct? Is there any other measure?
