Atttribute sampling
A sampling plan enabling the auditros to estimate the rate of deviation (occurrence) in a population.
confidence level
In attributes sampling, the complement of the risk of assessing control risk too low.
Deviation rate
A defined rate of departure from prescriebed controls
Discovery sampling
A sampling plan for locating at least 1 deviation, providing that hthe deviation occurs in the population with a specified frequency.
Expected population deviation rate
An advance estimate of a deviation rate
mean
the average item value, computed by dividing total value by the number of items composing total value.
Nonsampling risk
the aspects of audit risk not due to sampling. Normally relates to human rather than statistical errors.
Population
the entire field of items from which a sample might be drawn.
Probability-proportional-to-size sampling
A variables estimation procedure that uses attributes theory to express a conclusion in monetary (dollar) amounts.
Random selection
Selecting items from a population in a manner in which every item has anequal chance of being included in the sample.
Reliability
The complement of the risk of incorrect acceptance.
Representative sample
A xample possessing essentiallythe same characteristics as the population from which it was drawn.
Risk of assessing control risk too high
This risk is the possibility that the assessed level of control risk based on the sample is greater than the true operating effectiveness of the control
Sampling error
the difference between the actual rate or amount in the population and that of the sample.
Standard deviation
A measure of the variability or dispertion of item values within a population;
stratification
Dividing a population into two or more relatively homogeneous subgroups. Stratification increases the efficiency of most sampling plans by reducing the variability of tiems in each stratum.
Tolerable deviation rate
the maximum population rate of deviations from a prescribed control that the auditor will tolerate without modifying the planned assessment of control risk.
Variables sampling
Sampling plans designed to estimate a numerical measurement of a populaiton, such as a dollare value.
