We have some sample data from the US census, and we know the marginal
totals for the population.  We need to make the population estimates add
up to the correct sums.

I have two questions:

Is there some package in R which does this adjustment, by any means?

Is there some more modern reference for this problem than Deming's 1943
monograph, ``Statistical Adjustment of Data''?
