Estimates latent profiles (finite mixture models) using the open source
package `mclust`

.

estimate_profiles_mclust(df, n_profiles, model_numbers, select_vars, ...)

## Arguments

df |
data.frame with two or more columns with continuous variables |

n_profiles |
Numeric vector. The number of profiles (or mixture
components) to be estimated. Each number in the vector corresponds to an
analysis with that many mixture components. |

model_numbers |
Numeric vector. Numbers of the models to be estimated.
See `estimate_profiles` for a description of the models available
in tidyLPA. |

select_vars |
Character. Optional vector of variable names in `df` ,
to be used for model estimation. Defaults to `NULL` , which means all
variables in `df` are used. |

... |
Parameters passed directly to `Mclust` . See
the documentation of `Mclust` . |
