I am also interested in the validity of the below approach.  Thanks much.

 Dear Statalist contributors,

I would like to perform a two stage factor analysis on a data set with
sampling weights. That is, in the first stage I will perform factor
analysis on 8 groups of variables. In the second stage I will run
factor analysis on the factor scores obtained from the previous stage.
A similiar approach was adopted by Verspagen and Srholec
pweight option is allowed in polychoric function, so I can feed the
corresponding correlation matrix (with sampling weights) to factormat
function. Similiarly means with sampling weights can also be used with
the factormat function. I need feedback on the validity of this
approach. I'd also appreciate if you could help me on how to properly
incorporate standard deviations to factormat function to calculate
factor scores. Thanks in advance.
