Latent class growth analysis is used to identify distinct classes, or subgroups, in a population. This analysis assumes the growth trajectories within each class are homogenous, as they are assumed to be fixed at zero.

The latent congruency model is a measurement model designed for organizational research which creates two factors to represent the mean and difference of two interdependent component measures. It can estimate and control for measurement error, provide straightforward ways for examining measurement equivalence, allow for the examination of complex theoretical models, and allow the examination antecedents and consequences of congruence constructs and component measures.
