dens.prod.ordi {LCAextend}

computes the probability of a given discrete measurement vector for all classes under a product of multinomial
Package: 
LCAextend
Version: 
1.2

Description

computes the probability of an individual's discrete measurement vector for all latent classes under a multinomial distribution product, eventually taking covariates into account. This is an internal function not meant to be called by the user.

Usage

dens.prod.ordi(y.x, param, var.list = NULL)

Arguments

y.x
a vector y of values of the ordinal variables (measurements) followed by the values x of covariates, if any,
param
a list of the parameters alpha (cumulative logistic coefficients), see init.ordi,
var.list
a list of integers indicating which covariates (taken from x) are used for a given type of measurement.

Details

If there are K latent classes, d measurements and each measurement has S[j] possible values, alpha is a list of d elements, each is a K times S[j]+length{var.list[[j]]} matrix. For a class C=k, dens[k]=, where P(Y_j=y_j|C=k,X_j=x_j) is computed from the cumulative logistic coefficients alpha[[j]][k,] and covariates x[var.list[[j]]],

Values

The function returns a vector dens of length K, where dens[k] is the probability of measurement vector y with covariates x, if the individual belongs to class k.
