Governments around the world are pressed to invest in postsecondary education. However, little research exists to document whether large-scale educational reforms aimed at increasing rates of postsecondary attendance benefit youth’s developmental outcomes. This study tested whether an educational reform occurring in Québec, Canada, in the 1960s inc...

Cannabis has been documented as a preferred substance for sexualized drug use (SDU) in several different populations, including men who have sex with men (MSM; Edmundson et al., 2018; Hurley & Prestage, 2009; Parent et al., 2021; Schmidt et al., 2016).

Recent studies suggest that educational attainment may be protective against the development of adult criminality, particularly for children who are aggressive. Children with strong academic skills would also be less likely to commit criminal offenses, which might be due to the relation between achievement and education. Additionally, other risks (...

Question
I ran an LCA and the BIC indicates a 4 class model fit is better than the 3. The literature would support a 3 or 4 class solution. The problem is that one of the classes has only 5 cases. I was looking for references that would support marking those cases as missing and running with the only the three classes when I run a regression predicting these classes. I would use the 3 class LCA but I still only get 23 cases in one class when I force the 3 class fit. I can't find a specific reference that says I can use only certain classes (in this case 3/4) from the 4 class solution.
Thanks!

Project
The project aims to fill knowledge gaps regarding the functioning of crime as a neighbourhood social environment feature contributing to mental health inequities. In particular, it aims to identify urban interventions that are likely to be beneficial for population mental health, and for that of women, young adults and racialized groups in particular. The research will draw on existing data sources to develop two new measures of the urban social environment: hostile neighbourhood environment, police activity and presence. The results will identify life stressors likely contributing to clinical symptoms of depression, anxiety and somatic symptoms in marginalized and vulnerable populations.
