Audit sampling: Get started

Koen Derks



Welcome to the ‘Audit sampling’ vignette of the jfa package. Here you can find a detailed explanation of the functions in the package that facilitate the statistical audit sampling workflow. Specifically, these functions implement standard audit sampling techniques to calculate sample sizes, select items from a population, and evaluate misstatement in a data sample. The jfa package enables users to create a prior probability distribution to perform Bayesian audit sampling using these functions. For more detailed explanations of each function, read the other vignettes on the package website.
