CDIS Methods Workshop Series
Workshops will be 9:00am-12:00pm CST via Zoom on the 3rd Friday of every month.
Participants can register for all workshops or they can pick-and-choose.
"Introduction to Latent Class and Latent Profile Analysis" was held on July 17th.Recording available at
"Programming Basic Latent Class Models in SAS, Mplus, and Latent Gold" was held on August 21st. Recording available at
"Longitudinal Extensions of Latent Class Analysis, Including Latent Transition Analysis" was held on September 18, 2020. Recording available at
To attend additional workshops, participants must have working knowledge of basic latent class or latent profile analysis.
CANCELED - topics will be covered in November. Latent Class Analysis with Outcomes, Including Latent Class Moderation - October 16, 2020
The goal of this half-day workshop is to help participants gain the theoretical background and applied skills to be able to address interesting research questions focused on predicting outcomes from latent class membership. This workshop will focus on latent class/profile analysis with a distal outcome and latent class moderation (i.e., latent class/profile membership acting as a moderator). An overview of recent literature in this area will be provided, as will clarification about currently recommended approaches from three major research groups working in this area. Note that software will be discussed during this workshop but participants should plan to attend the next workshop, too, if they want detailed information about programming these advanced models. Participants must have working knowledge of basic latent class and latent profile analysis, but access to software is not required for this workshop.
Programming Advanced Latent Class Models in SAS, Mplus, and Latent Gold - November 20, 2020
The goal of this half-day workshops is to help participants understand how to program advanced latent class and latent profile models in SAS, Mplus, and Latent Gold. Participants will learn how to fit latent transition models (with and without grouping variables and covariates) and latent class/profile models with distal outcomes, distal outcomes controlling for covariates, and distal outcomes with moderation. Participants must have working knowledge of advanced latent class and latent profile models, as well as access to at least one software package that will fit advanced latent class/profile models (SAS, Mplus, or Latent Gold). Note that not all models are supported by all software packages, and that Stata and R will not be supported during this workshop.
Open Discussion About Applying Latent Class Models in Your Own Work - December 18, 2020
This half-day workshop will be an open discussion session designed to help participants start posing and addressing research questions in their own areas that could be answered using latent class/profile/transition analysis, and to help participants get up and running fitting latent class/profile/transition models to their own data. This will be a free-flowing discussion and question-and-answer session. Participants who register for this workshop will be contacted in advance and a few may be selected to lead a discussion about their ideas. Participants should come prepared with questions and ready for an interactive session.
Please select each workshop you wish to attend. You may select as many or a few as you would like.
