Software Defect Prediction (SDP) is a popular research area which plays an important role for software quality. It works as an indicator of whether a software module is defect-free or defective. In this study, a review has been conducted from January 2015 to August 2019 and 165 articles are selected in the area of SDP to know the prevalence of Machine Learning (ML) techniques. These articles are collected by searching in Google Scholar, and they are published in various platforms (e.g., IEEE, Springer, Elsevier). Firstly the information has been extracted from the collected particles, and then the information has been pre-processed, categorized, visualized, and finally, the results have been reported. The result shows the most frequently used data sets, classifiers, performance metrics, and techniques in SDP. This investigation will help to find the prevalence of ML techniques in SDP and give a quick view to understand the trends of ML techniques in defect prediction research.
