Why not adjust detected misstatements in financial statements?

Understanding the judgment and decision-making process of auditors is important to understand how audit quality can be achieved. Especially the decision-making concerning adjusting detected misstatements in the financial statements is important to understand. However, despite numerous experimental studies in this area, only a few studies were able to use the actual auditor’s working papers. In this unique study we were able to examine the decision-making based on working-papers of 850 audit engagements.
