Do you have a few accurately observed variables such as the population
age and gender breakdown? If so you can often create
post-stratification weights (through a process called "raking") that
make your samples align with the associations observed in those
tables.

A quick -findit raking- turned up a program -ipfraking- written by
Stas Kolenikov and available from his website. Hopefully he'll chime
in.
