Maximum entropy and minimum cross-entropy estimation are applica- ble when faced with ill-posed estimation problems. I introduce a Stata command that estimates a probability distribution using a maximum entropy or minimum cross-entropy criterion. I show how this command can be used to calibrate survey data to various population totals.
