  1. Note. AIC = Akaike’s Information Criterion, BIC=Bayesian Information Criterion. ∆ refers to the difference of an information criterion from a model with k classes compared with the information criterion from a model with k+1 classes. For AIC and BIC, lower values indicate better trade-off between the complexity and the goodness of fit of the model. LR = Lo-Rubin Test. Bold refers to the model that was chosen for further analyses. Levels of significance are ** p < .01, *** p <.001
