# Latent class analysis and membership function

I'm running a latent class (profile) analysis, and there is still a thing not clear to me. What happens when I don't include the constant in the membership function? Is the interpretation different? Should be the choice justified? And if so, when should I include it or not include it? Thank you

$$P(C = 1) = \frac{e^{\gamma_1}}{e^{\gamma_1} + e^{\gamma_2}}$$ $$P(C = 2) = \frac{e^{\gamma_2}}{e^{\gamma_1} + e^{\gamma_2}}$$
$${\gamma_1}$$ and $${\gamma_2}$$ are intercepts, or constants, and by convention, $${\gamma_1}$$ is set to zero (you have to set one or the other to zero, anyway). So ... there is no way not to included the intercepts in the multinomial part of the equation. It does not work. Can you clarify if you were asking about something else?
