Test significance covariates Latent Class

I have used different covariates (gender, age, attitude, etc.) in my CBC. After running a Latent Class analysis I have defined my segments.
Now, I would like to know whether my covariates are significant, as well what the part-worths are per segment.
How can this be done via Latent Class (or Sawtooth in general)?

Use the segment assignments (the categorical assignment of each respondent to his or her most likely segment) and use that as a grouping variable.  Then can run crosstabulations/chi-square analyses and analysis of variance (ANOVAs) against your categorical and quantitative demographic variables, respectively.  

You can export the data to Excel or SPSS and then run them in any general statistics package you want.
