Multiphase sampling is an extension of two-phase sampling, also known as double sampling. Multiphase sampling must be distinguished from multistage sampling since, in multiphase sampling, the different phases of observation relate to sample units of the same type, while in multistage sampling, the sample units are of different types at different stages.
