Does Stata perform alternative estimation methods for a CFA with
severely non-normal ordinal indicators (e.g. Satorra-Bentler, etc.)?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take a look at Chapter 10, especially, Section 10.3, in A. Skrondal and
S. Rabe-Hesketh, _Generalized Latent Variable Modeling. Multilevel,
Longitudinal and Structural Equation Models_ (Boca Raton, Fla.: Chapman &
Hall/CRC, 2004), to see whether it's along the lines of what you're looking
for.

The confirmatory factor modeling described there can be done with -gllamm-,
a user-written Stata command ( www.gllamm.org ).

The book can be ordered through StataCorp's online bookstore
( www.stata.com/bookstore/glvm.html ), which also shows the book's table of
contents with chapter and section titles.
