Lisa,

Make a cross tab (Age and Sex) for each dataset.
The cells are the % over the dataset

DatasetA		20-50		51-70
sex 	Male		25%		20%
	Female	25%		30%

DatasetB		20-50		51-70
sex 	Male		20%		15%
	Female	50%		15%

The weights are the ratio of % datasetB over % dataset A

WeightA		20-50		51-70
sex 	Male		.8		.75
	Female	2		.5


If one has a solution for more genral case (say 5 variables, some of the
cross cells are empty..)
 thanks for sharing

Regards
Naji

Objet : st: best way to create iweight?


I have dataset "A" with some distribution of age (in years) and sex
(0,1), and totally unrelated dataset "B" with some different
distribution of age and sex.  What is the most parsimonious way to
create an iweight for individuals in dataset B that will give it the
same age and sex distribution of dataset A?

Thank you,
