Sampford sampling is a method for unequal probability sampling. There exist several implementations of the Sampford sampling design which all are rejective methods, i.e. the sample is not always accepted. Thus the existing methods can be time consuming or even infeasible in some situations. In this paper, a fast and non-rejective list-sequential method, which works in all situations, is presented. The method is a modification of a previously existing rejective list-sequential method. Another list-sequential implementation of Sampford sampling is also presented.
