Hi everybody!

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new program (-fmmlc-) is available from SSC.
Type -ssc install fmmlc- to install it or -ssc describe fmmlc- for a
summary. Once installed, type -help fmmlc- for further information
and instructions.

-fmmlc- is a postestimation tool for -fmm-, Partha Deb's (2008) package with
which to fit finite mixture regression models. -fmmlc- provides a convenient
overview of latent class posterior probabilities, classification of
subjects based
on most likely latent class membership, average posterior
probabilities by latent
class, the quality of a classification (entropy), and the information
criteria AIC,
BIC, and a sample size adjusted BIC. -fmmlc- optionally saves a categorical
variable indicating latent class membership and/or latent class
posterior probabilities.

Any questions, criticism, or suggestions are most welcome and should be send to
the following email address:

All the best,
