Another response from Tom Pullum:

Yes, you should be able to do the rescaling later. I would go back to the original files and calculate the survey-specific ratios or factors that I described. That's one number for each survey. Some factors will be greater than one, some will be less than one. Then go to the final (merged and collapsed) files and multiply the weights (or weighted frequencies) by those factors, survey by survey. To check, you can confirm that in the final file each survey has the same total weight. There are other ways to get the same result but this should work.
