prcr is an
R package for person-centered analysis. Person-centered analyses focus on clusters, or profiles, of observations, and their change over time or differences across factors. See Bergman and El-Khouri (1999) for a description of the analytic approach. See Corpus and Wormington (2014) for an example of person-centered analysis in psychology and education.
Because this package is in development and is not yet available on CRAN, to install it, first install the
devtools package using
install.packages("devtools"), followed by the function
devtools::install_github("jrosen48/prcr"). After installing the package, use
library(prcr) to load it in each session.
A bit more info. is available here. I would love your feedback if you try it.
