LCA Distal SAS Macro

Overview

The %LCA_Distal SAS macros estimate the association between a latent class variable and a distal outcome. Both macros require PROC LCA (version 1.3.2 or higher) and SAS (version 9.1 or higher).

NOTE: We recommend using the LCADistalBCH macro and offer the LCADistalLTB macro only for methodological research.

  • requires simple, minimal syntax
  • estimates class-specific probabilities and standard errors for binary and categorical distal outcomes
  • estimates means and standard errors for count and continuous distal outcomes
  • accommodates distal outcomes for multiple groups
