I have a question regarding the degrees of freedom of my study since I do not know exactly how to determine them.
I've run a LC analysis with 5 attributes with three levels each. My optimal solution gives me 4 segments. My sample size is N = 265. Each respondent had to answer 12 choice tasks including 3 stimuli/ product concepts and a none-option. Within these 12 choice tasks, I've included 2 fixed tasks for hold-out prediction.
Can you tell me how to calculate the number of parameters and degrees of freedom exactly? I think for the number of parameters, I get (5x2 +1)x4 segments = 44 parameters. Is that correct?
I am looking forward to hear from you soon :-)
