From Q
Jump to: navigation, search

Create a new variable which contains the class for each respondent based on a Choice Modeling - Latent Class Analysis output. You must select the output before running this script.

Output

Running this QScript will produce a new variable, which will appear in your data set for use in further analyses.

Technical details

Each respondent has a probability of being in each class. You can determine these probabilities by using Choice Modeling - Save Variable(s) - Class Membership Probabilities, and looking at the RAW DATA. The new variable generated by this script assigns each respondent to the class with the largest probability of membership.
