These are some references that I have used.
The following two helped me understand the process behind CATREG, that
is, an alternating least squares/optimal scaling process.

Qualitative and Quantitative Variables: An Alternating Least Squares
Method with Optimal Scaling Features. Psychometrika 41: 505-28.

Psychometrika 46: 357-87.
The following are more general relating to the area of categorical
analysis and may not specifically cover CATREG, however, they may help
you understand some of the concepts.

England: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Van de Geer, John P. 1993b. Multivariate Analysis of Categorical Data:
Applications. Newbury Park, California: Sage Publications.
Unfortunately, a search for CATREG on the web has never provided a lot
of useful references because CATREG and categorical regression are used
to describe several methodologies.
The Data Theory Group in the Netherlands has been a focal point for work
in this area. Their web site is: http://www.datatheory.nl/index.html.
Hopefully someone from that group will respond with better/more

Subject: CATREG reference
I used CATREG function of SPSS in my analysis. I need a reference source
for CATREG in SPSS and interpretation of quantification numbers as well
as Betas in regression output, in order to explain my results to
reviewers who did not use it before. I was asked to provide more details
than hose already exist in SPSS help files. Can anyone help me on this
