Sampling risk and how it affects sample size in the audit.

Sampling risk is the risk that an auditor’s conclusion based on the sample may be different from the conclusion if the entire population was subjected to the same audit procedures.

The greater the sample risk, the greater the sample size required for the given population. The auditor must ensure that the sample size selected will provide sufficient evidence to reduce sampling risk to an acceptable level.
