st: Weights in Poisson regression

Does anyone know how to use population at the unit of analysis (e.g.,
population within each county of Connecticut) as weights in Poisson
regression with an exposure variable (i.e., population of each county
itself)? I wanted to simply use analytic weights but Poisson doesn't
allow it due to its non-linear functional form. Anyone knows how to
deal with this or knows any paper along this line?

I would very much appreciate any input!

Kindest regards,
