Invasive Testing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To all forensic experts out there:

What if any is the accepted and fair mathetical method for projecting the 
total number of residential units that are likely to have a specific defect 
based on this defect, found by invasive testing in a small percentage of less 
than half of the total number of residential units in a development?

Is a direct proration valid even if the number sampled is small compared to 
the total number of units involved?

I would like to be able to refute some of the numbers that the plaintiff's 
expert witness came up with, with documentation of accepted methods if indeed 
they do exist.

Any advice or references regarding this process would be greatly appreciated.

THANKS,
