Introduction to Latent Class Analysis and its Extensions
Dr. Bethany Bray and Dr. Stephanie Lanza Pennsylvania State University's Methodology Center

"Dr. Bethany Bray's research focuses on developing and applying advanced statistical methods to questions about the longitudinal development of substance use, with a special emphasis on the relation between substance use and the development of comorbid problem behaviors like gambling and risky sexual behavior. Toward that end, she works on longitudinal, latent variable modeling, including latent class analysis, latent transition analysis, and their extensions. At The Methodology Center, she works primarily with Stephanie Lanza and John Dziak."

"Dr. Stephanie Lanza works primarily in two methodological areas. Much of her work seeks to advance finite mixture models, particularly latent class analysis. Her primary collaborators on this project include Bethany Bray, John Dziak, and Megan Patrick. She also works to advance and apply new statistical models in order to reveal dynamic processes. Much of this work, done in collaboration with Runze Li, Michael Russell, and Sara Vasilenko, addresses new research questions about age- and time-varying effects related to health behavior."
