The goal is to run a logit model with a dataset that is representative of
the distribution of males and females in a particular subject area.

The problem is that I am working with a sample with far more female than
male survey respondents. Of 215 randomly selected survey respondents, 86 are
male, 129 female. According to the female proportion in the population, I
would only include 33 female responses.

Is there a way (e.g. through bootstrapping or Monte Carlo simulation) that I
can keep the 86 male respondents in the sample and match them with a series
of 33 randomly selected female respondents from the total 129 female
respondents in the sample? Is it possible to run a logit model in this

Thank you in advance for any help.
