## Abstract

To estimate the proportion of a sensitive attribute of the population that is composed of the number of different sized clusters, we suggest a two-stage randomized response model with unequal probability sampling by using Abdelfatah et al.'s procedure [Braz. J. Probab. Stat. 27 (2013) 608- 617]. We compute the estimate of the sensitive parameter, its variance, and the variance estimator for both pps sampling and two-stage equal probability sampling. We extend our model to the case of stratified unequal probability sampling and compute them. Finally, we compare the efficiency of the two estimators, one obtained by unequal probability sampling and the other by stratified unequal probability sampling.
