    SOFTWARE TO DESIGN SAMPLING PLANS--H & H Servicco Corp. has software to develop sampling plans based on the OC-Curve: (Sampling Plans for Attributes-TP, and Sampling Plans for Variables-TP). Additionally, the Audit Sample Planner software has the capability selecting a series of random samples of items, where each sample does not contain. This guide introduces statistical and nonstatistical sampling approaches, and features case studies illustrating the use of different sampling methods, including classical variables sampling and monetary unit sampling, in real-world situations.

A common sampling method for tests of controls is attribute sampling. Attribute sampling means that an item being sampled either does or doesn’t have certain qualities, or attributes. An auditor selects a certain number of records to estimate how many times a specific feature will show up in a population.

The auditor should also take care to check the quality of the information from which the sample is to be drawn.

If the quality is poor, sampling may not be justified. Do we really use them. Of the 31 reports published by the end of July of the session, there are 7 examples of using judgmental sampling for illustrative case studies and.

When auditors use sampling, they can choose one of two methods: the statistical approach or the judgmental (non-statistical) approach.

The statistical approach uses computer-based technology to come up with sample size numbers and randomly select items from the population. You can use sampling to test the strength of a client’s internal controls, but you also use sampling to test account balances.

The full name for this process in auditing lingo is sampling for substantive tests of details of account balances. In non-auditing talk, this means the auditor uses sampling to.
