Abstract : In this communication, we analyse the pro and the con of Bayesian inference in the model-based clustering context. We exhibit situations where its main drawbacks can be avoided or circumvented. We consider the latent class model for categorical data and derive their (completed) integrated likelihoods without requiring asymptotic approximations. We highlight the interest and the traps of the resulting model selection criteria.
