Thus, the choice of nonstatistical or statistical sampling does not directly affect the auditor's decisions about the auditing procedures to be applied, the appropriateness of the audit evidence obtained with respect to. Audit sampling the objective of statistical sampling in an audit context can be defined as follows: to employ random selection procedures and statistical evaluation techniques in representative testing (whether for compliance or substantive objectives) so as to eliminate the risk of bias and so as to permit quantification of the sampling confidence achieved wh. Overview the power of a statistical procedure can be thought of as the probability that the procedure will detect a true difference of a specified typeas in talking about p-values and confidence levels, the reference category for probability is the sample.
Balances) calibrated by in-process control personnel operating procedures (sops) are used as the basis for the tests together with the manufacturing instructions. Harvey jones, cpa, uses statistical sampling to test control procedures what is a benefit of using statistical sampling a it eliminates the use of judgment required of jones because the aicpa has established numerical criteria for this type of testing. The sampling procedure should be appropriate to the pur- pose of sampling, to the type of controls intended to be applied to the samples and to the material to be sampled.
The attribute sampling refers to statistics relating to test controls and measures presence of controls or deviations from prescribed procedures the attribute sampling may be used for example to discover rate of deviations in payroll processing or cash disbursements. In statistics, quality assurance, and survey methodology, sampling is the selection of a subset (a statistical sample) of individuals from within a statistical population to estimate characteristics of the whole population. The sequential sampling procedure implements various sequential probability ratio tests (sprts) unlike statistical tests which have a fixed sample size, the number of samples required by sequential tests is not predetermined. Quantiles for a large sample size n, the calculation of quantiles, including the median, requires computing time proportional to n log(n)therefore, a procedure, such as univariate, that automatically calculates quantiles might require more time than other data summarization procedures. Chapter 9 statistical sampling for testing control procedures 143 5 in order to quantify the risk that sample evidence leads to erroneous conclusions about the sampled population a each item in the sampled population must have an equal chance of being selected.

1 1 introduction the present guidelines describe a number of sampling methods, from arbitrary methods to methods with a statistical background. The significant difference between nonstatistical and statistical sampling is that statistical sampling measures the sampling risk associated with sampling procedures sampling risk arises from the possibility that when a test of controls or substantive test is applied to a sample, the auditor's conclusions might be different from those that. This statistical sampling method is appropriate for examination procedures in which the frequency of errors, exceptions, or another feature of interest is of primary concern and the.
