Hi Andrew,

IPF requires that the gender and party variables need to be numeric.
I shall tighten up this code but in the mean time use numbers for gender and party and it should work

Hello All,

This seems like a straight forward example. But I don't understand why
it fails. I am using version 10.1

input str6 gender str8 party wgt
gender party wgt
male democrat 55
male repub 65
female democrat 50
female repub 30

. ipf [fweight = wgt], fit(gender + party)
Deleting all matrices......

Expansion of the various marginal models
marginal model 1 varlist :  gender
marginal model 2 varlist :  party
type mismatch

end of do-file
