Latent Class Analysis is a statistical method for finding subtypes of related cases (latent classes) from multivariate categorical data. In this workshop the method will be explained through an example in R. Participants are welcome to bring a laptop (with R already installed). 


Lecture and discussion with example


Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop with R already installed. Having RStudio and the package poLCA installed would be helpful, but not necessary. If you do not have access to a laptop, you are still welcome to attend and will be able to learn about the LCA method.
