Latent variable analysis package for R

July 17, 2010

(This article was first published on Shige's Research Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This is another R package for latent variable analysis. I hope it can soon include multilevel and mixture modeling capacity. Another promising package is OpenMx, which is also under active development and very promising. At this moment, OpenMx seems to have more features than lavaan (e.g. categorical dependent variable, mixture model, etc.), but lavaan promises to include them in the next year or so.
