A Testing Fit in Latent Class Analysis

    Hi All,
    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?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
