This paper presents an alternative to existing procedures used when sampling from rare populations. It is based on a two-phase sampling scheme with a corresponding probability-proportional-to-size sampling design. The sampling design proposed has the frequently used conditional Poisson sampling design as a special case. The proposed procedure is applied to a real life survey situation where real estates with fishing rights in Sweden constitute the target population.
