My -survwgt- program, part of the -svr- package on SSC, includes a program that does raking.

Good morning,

I'm a new user looking for help with the Survey package. I want to balance (also called raking) an Internet survey to make sample proportions (say for key demographics) agree with Census data. This is a very common practice that originated with Deming under the title iterative proportional fitting. I don't see anything that will do this, although I really did expect this very common procedure to be there. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Walt Paczkowski
