This is an example of what is usually called "post stratification." The SVY procedures in
Version 9 will handle this. Do -findit postratification- in Stata V9 to find a link to a worked example
on the UCLA web site. The help file for -svyset- also contains information on post stratification.

I have an opinion poll type dataset provided by a market research company. It comes with a weight variable. I was told by their representative that this weight variable is derived by something called "rim weighting" which I am not familiar with from my medical stats background.
