Definitely holy priest. The expected representation for each spec is 16.67% if healers were evenly distributed across specs, or 20% for all non-priests and 10% for each priest spec if healers were evenly distributed across classes. Holy's at about 2-6% in 10s and 7-9% in 25s.

But if you want the rarest class overall, it's monks, coming in at roughly 10% of healers in every raid size. Priests overall have the highest representation because Disc is very high and Holy is nonzero.

I don't think we've pugged a MW in 2 months. But then, last night was the first time we'd pugged a holy priest in 2 months.

Damn druids are everywhere.

Mistweaver monks are the least common of what I've seen.

My realm seems to have a bunch of Mistweavers, and every single Priest is Disc. >.<

I wonder what the data would look like in the theoretical scenario where Disc was "balanced" so that Holy felt like a genuine playstyle choice to the playbase rather than a no-brainer (perceived or otherwise).

Holy priest followed by monk. Maybe if disc wasn't so good monks could give holy a run for it's money. Maybe. Monk deserves honorable mention though since a holy priest can respec to disc.
