mlfit: Iterative Proportional Fitting Algorithms for Nested Structures

The Iterative Proportional Fitting (IPF) algorithm operates on count data. This package offers implementations for several algorithms that extend this to nested structures: 'parent' and 'child' items for both of which constraints can be provided. The fitting algorithms include Iterative Proportional Updating <>, Hierarchical IPF <doi:10.3929/ethz-a-006620748>, Entropy Optimization <>, and Generalized Raking <doi:10.2307/2290793>. Additionally, a number of replication methods is also provided such as 'Truncate, replicate, sample' <doi:10.1016/j.compenvurbsys.2013.03.004>.
