I need some advice on using mca in version 9. I am using data from the Canadian National Public Health Survey which requires that I submit my Stata programs to them. They run them and return them to me. I am a Stata 10 user. They supply dummy data to test your programs. Here is my issue. I am creating an index of health using the mca command in stata 10 and the post estimation command predict to create my health index. Unfortunately, in stata 9 there is an add-in for mca but no post-estimation commands are supported with this. Has anyone ever used the mca in stata 9 and then created their own index using the output? I'd appreciate any help you can provide.
