STAT 854/454 Sampling Theory and Practice Assignment 3 Due: Wednesday, February 25, in class Format: standard A4 size paper, single-sided, with a cover page 1. An accounting firm is interested in estimating the error rate in a compliance audit it is conducting. The population contains 828 claims, and each claim consists of 215 fields. The firm audits 85 claims selected using SRSWOR, and all 215 fields are checked for errors for each selected claim. It is found that one claim has errors in 4 of the 215 fields, one claim has three errors, 4 claims have two errors, 22 claims have one error, and the remaining 57 claims have no error. (a) Treating this as single-stage cluster sampling, estimate the error rate for all 828 claims. Give a standard error for your estimate. (b) Estimate (with standard error) the total number of errors in the 828 claims. (c) Suppose that, instead of taking a cluster sample, the firm takes 85 × 215 = 18 , 275 fields from the 828 × 215 = 178 , 020 fields in the population using SRSWOR. If the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
