I need to estimate log-linear models using sampling weights.  I am
interested only in finding the best fitting models, not in parameter
estimates.

My understanding is that this can be done by using the - desmat: poisson
- command to estimate the unweighted cell counts while using the -
exposure - subcommand used to specify the weights.  Is this correct?  If
so, what goes in the parentheses after - exposure -?  I am guessing that
it must be a variable equal to something like the weighted count divided
by the unweighted count. 

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Paul
