ACCEPTANCE SAMPLING is statistical sampling to determine whether internal control compliance is greater than or less than the tolerable deviation rate.
SAMPLING ERROR is the fact that unless 100% of a population is examined, there is some chance the sample results will mislead the examiner. This risk is sampling error.
The larger the sample, the less chance of sampling error and the greater the
reliability of the results.
