Inter-Item Correlations Among Function Points

By Barbara Kitchenham and Kari Kansala

The study suggests that Function Points are not well-formed metrics because there is a correlation between their constituent elements. It also suggests that for the dataset under investigation) two of the constituent elements were as good at predicting effort as the raw function point count and that the unweighted counts can be reasonable predictors of effort.
