A graph with two BIC curves corresponding to the settings with a common λ and cluster-specific λ respectively for the first-stage cluster analysis. Little difference in the BIC values between the two settings is observed. In accordance with the principle of parsimony which favors a simpler model, we opt for the default setting here.
