Adjust is a program package to adjust (grossing-up, (re-)weight) microdata (samples) by the minimum information loss (MIL) principle. It is suitable for all cases where the representativity of sample data is required by weighting or reweighting a sample, respectively a survey.

For each microunit of a microdata file (sample) a suitable weight is searched in that way that the weighted sum of all microunit characteristics will be equal to externally given aggregates (restrictions, margins or population totals).
