Latent Class Scaling Analysis



April 1999 | 104 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
With empirical examples which are both plentiful and well chosen to teach the technique, this book provides a thorough guide to latent class scaling models for binary response variables. Substantive illustrations include a survey on academic cheating, children's mastery of spatial tasks, medical diagnosis of lung disease, attitudes toward the Army and behaviour during role conflict. The computer programs for latent class analysis are carefully reviewed and a website is offered for keeping abreast of the latest developments. This book will be of particular interest to those doing detailed scale analysis in psychology, sociology and education.
