Model Selection Information Criteria for Non-Nested Latent Class Models.
Lin, Ting Hsiang; Dayton, C. Mitchell
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v22 n3 p249-64 Fall 1997
The use of these three model selection information criteria for latent class models was studied for nonnested models: (1) Akaike's information criterion (H. Akaike, 1973) (AIC); (2) the Schwarz information (G. Schwarz, 1978) (SIC) criterion; and (3) the Bozdogan version of the AIC (CAIC) (H. Bozdogan, 1987). Situations in which each is preferable are discussed. (SLD)
