Surveying and classifying previous work in a particular field brings several benefits, which are to (a) help organise a given body of knowledge, (b) provide results that can help identify gaps that need to be filled, (c) provide a categorisation that can also be applied or adapted to other surveys, and (d) provide a classification and summary of results that may benefit practitioners and researchers who wish to carry out meta-analyses. This chapter presents a literature survey of size measures (attributes) that have been published since 1992 and classifies these measures according to a proposed taxonomy. We also discuss ways in which Web companies can devise their own size measures.
