Subject   st: interpreting mca postestimation command "predict P1, rowscores" in Stata 10

I need help interpreting the output generated from running 
"predict P1, rowscores" following a multiple correspondence analysis.

Are the values generated from predicted P1 rowscores equivalent to
summing coordinate weights across the matrix of variables included in
the mca?  


I ran a multiple correspondence analysis:

mca (varlist)

I then ran the following-

Predict P1, rowscores

How to interpret the result of that? 


Thank you!
