Cluster Analysis
EnRICH Webinar Series

Webinar Time: 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM Eastern Time

April is Autism Awareness Month

This webinar will be focused on latent class cluster analyses (LCCA). LCCA is a model based cluster analysis method used to identify subtypes of related cases (latent classes) from categorical, ordinal, and continuous multivariate data. It provides a way of identifying latent segments (types) for which parameters in a specified model differ.

Traci Clemons, PhD, Vice President at The EMMES Corporation. Dr. Clemons oversees the Data Coordinating Center for MCHB funded Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P). Dr. Clemons also serves as Principal Investigator for numerous statistical and data coordinating centers sponsored by the Federal government and private pharmaceutical corporations in a variety of disease areas, such as age related macular degeneration, cataract, macular telangiectasia, and pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.
