I am searching for a consultant to help me with my dissertation.
I am doing a Monte Carlo simulation study that compares the ability of four different methods to detect clusters in data (factor mixture modeling, Q factor analysis, and two other methods). I am testing the methods on different data conditions: sample size, distributional assumption of variables, mixture proportions, number of clusters, etc. I used Fanís method outlined in his text but something is off. I have spent way too much time on data generation, considering it is not the overarching research question.
I used SAS for the data simulations. But am open to SPSS, R or Mplus.
Is there anyone out there that has done such in the past and would like to be hired to do such?
