ABSTRACT
During the past five years, several studies [1]-[3] have purported to show that Thayer's software reliability data on “System 3” [4] validates Halstead's theory on software fault prediction [5]. It should be pointed out that the System 3 data were neither collected nor reduced in accordance with the theory's requirements, and, therefore, these data, as is, cannot properly be used for validating the theory.
