    In 1988 a Dutch large scale survey on the state of the art in practice of software cost estimation and control showed disappointing results. The survey was repeated in 1998. Since then, additional research has resulted in more consensus what good practices in the area mean. In 1998 a comparable survey has been carried out with the intend of finding out if these good practices have been adopted in practice and to see if this resulted in better estimations. The result of this survey is presented in this paper.
