Suppose we observe responses on several categorical variables having the same scale. We consider latent class models for the joint classification that satisfy quasi-symmetry. The models apply when subject-specific response distributions are such that (i) for a given subject, responses on different variables are independent, and (ii) odds ratios comparing… CONTINUE READING
