Steps in MUS Sampling Application Evaluation 6. Calculate the projected misstatement and the upper limit on misstatement 7. Draw final conclusions. The misstatements detected in the sample must be projected to the population. Consider the following information about the inventory account balance of an audit client: Book value of inventory account balance 3,000,000 $ Book value of items sampled 100,000 $ Audited value of items sampled 98,000 Total amount of overstatement observed in audit sample 2,000 $

The ratio of misstatement in the sample is 2% ($2,000 ÷ $100,000) Applying the ratio to the entire population produces a best estimate of misstatement of inventory of $60,000. ($3,000,000 × 2%) Book value of inventory account balance 3,000,000 $ Book value of items sampled 100,000 $ Audited value of items sampled 98,000 Total amount of overstatement observed in audit sample 2,000 $ XBar = $60,000
