2007 Software engineering notes  
Software faults are a major threat for the dependability of software systems. When we intend to study the impact of software faults on software behavior, examine the quality of fault tolerance mechanisms, or evaluate diagnostic techniques, the issue of distinguishing fault categories and their frequency distribution arises immediately. This article surveys the literature that provides quantitative data on categories of software faults and discusses the applicability of these software fault
