Three decades ago, Fritschi, Meyer, and Schweizer proposed in the Swiss Journal of Sociology an elegant procedure to draw a country-wide random sample for Switzerland by using the communal register of voters or of residents as a sampling frame. However, despite the advantages of their method, most surveys in Switzerland use the telephone register as a sampling frame, even though population coverage is problematic. In an attempt to revive their proposal, I present some reflections on Fritschi et al.'s sampling procedure. I analyze the theoretical properties of this procedure and propose a more parsimonious alternative, the ex ante separated sampling method. I then illustrate the proposal's advantages over a simple cluster sample using a simulation.
