  1. Note. Boldface rows describe the best fitting model in both samples
  2. LL Log-likelihood, BIC Bayesian Information Criterion, SSA-BIC Sample Size Adjusted Bayesian Information Criterion, LMR p-value for Adjusted Lo-Mendell-Rubin likelihood ratio test, BLRT p-value for bootstrap likelihood ratio test
  3. nC < 10/5% = number of profiles with less than 10 and 5% of the cases respectively
