Re: st: Should rim weights be taken as sampling weights in SVYSET, say?
This is an example of what is usually called "post stratification." The SVY
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.
