I am a Stata 9.2 user but I reverted to SPSS (and SAS, too) when I needed to do multiple correspondence analysis. That was my solution to the same problem. But I think you may find some help in:
Greenacre, M., 1993, Correspondence analysis in practice, Academic Press, London.
Also, you may inspect the mca.ado file for Stata 10 to see how scores are calculated.

P.S. I'll NOT receive/read any email but the Digest.

>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.
