The set of best methods for sampling mi- grant populations includes name-based sampling. So far this is done using either ad-hoc lists or onomastic dictionaries for the classi cation of names. This paper pro- poses a new name-based procedure, which uses a Bayes-classi er for the n-grams of the name. The new procedure is fault-tol- erant of alternate spellings, and also allows the classi cation of names that are not found in dictionaries. It was tested using the names of about 1.600 foreigners in the PASS panel. Finally, a CATI survey based on the new method in Hesse is described.
