Calibrating survey data using iterative proportional fitting (raking)
In this article, I introduce the ipfraking package, which implements weight-calibration procedures known as iterative proportional fitting, or raking, of complex survey weights. The package can handle a large number of control variables and trim the weights in various ways. It also provides diagnostic tools for the weights it creates. I provide examples of its use and a suggested workflow for creating raked replicate weights. Copyright 2014 by StataCorp LP.
