Abstract : A method of obtaining estimates of the parameters of the latent class model based on first classifying individuals into 'latent classes' according to some rule is presented. Properties of the estimates and implications to the identifiability problem are discussed. An example of the use of the partitioning method, contrasting it with the determinantal method, is given.
