Issue No.09 - September (2007 vol.33)
In this correspondence, we point out a discrepancy in a recent paper "Data Mining Static Code Attributes to Learn Defect Predictors" that was published in this journal. Because of the small percentage of defective modules, using pd and pf as accuracy measures may lead to impractical prediction models.
