There can be a wide variation in gearing factor data depending upon the source. Therefore, this list was compiled in order to provide an average gearing factor based upon all known industry sources:
Quantitative Software Management (QSM), QSM Associates, David Consulting
Group, and my own calculations. Links to these sources can be found below.
(If you know of any other sources, please let me know.) The basic criteria
for a language gearing factor being included was that there had to be more
than one source found. If possible, the best source for gearing factors is
to calculate them from your own internal data.
