Applications of Latent Class Models published

Two of my studies which apply latent class analyses to the study of social psychological phenomena have now been published. The first one focuses on the dynamic between representations of obedience and disobedience in two samples of Italian and Finnish students. In this paper individual indicators for obedience and disobedience were centred on the group mean. Thus, analysis provides statistical information (i.e., significance level) about the deviance the class from the general mean of each of the indicator. In other words, it centred latent class analysis can be used to test whether certain indicators identify a specific class or not. The article appeared in the International Journal of Intercultural Relations.

The second article uses instead multilevel latent class modelling to explore data on protest from the World Values Survey.  The article  appeared in the Social Science Journal.
