Multiple correspondence analysis using PROC CORRESP

Hi there

I want to follow the approach taken by

'Booysen et al. Using an Asset Index to Assess Trends in Poverty in Seven Sub-Saharan African Countries. World Development, Volume 36, Issue 6, June 2008, Pages 1113-1130'

to calculate an asset index using the latest Swaziland Demographic & Health Survey data

The article can be downloaded here:

Booysen et al (2009) used multiple correspondence analysis (MCA) to calculate an asset index for each of the households.

My question is: How do I get the MCA weights for each of the variables that I enter into the model using PROC CORRESP?

Or where do I see the MCA weights in the output after running PROC CORRESP?

An asset index is then calculated for each household by adding up the MCA weights for the variables I entered into the model.

Refer to http://support.sas.com/onlinedoc/913/docMainpage.jsp for an overview of PROC CORRESP
