Item response theory in model-based clustering
Languages of publication
Item response theory is considered to be one of the two trends in methodological assessment of the reliability scale. In turn, latent class models can be viewed as a special case of model-based clustering, for heterogenous multivariate discrete data. We used the approach combining item response theory and latent class models to find groups of Polish households’ with similar saving ability levels. We analyzed data collected as part of the Polish Social Diagnosis using MultiLCIRT package of R.
