New study on latent class analysis in PLS-SEM


We’re happy to announce the publication of the paper titled “Latent class analysis in PLS-SEM: A review and recommendations for future applications” in Journal of Business Research. In the paper, Marko Sarstedt (LMU Munich), Lăcrămioara Radomir, Ovidiu I Moisescu (both Babeș-Bolyai University, Romania), and Christian M. Ringle (TU Hamburg-Harburg) review applications of FIMIX-PLS – the most prominent technique for capturing unobserved heterogeneity in the field. Based on their results, the authors offer recommendations for the method’s future use. Check out the full article here (free access until Nov 16, 2021):
