Agile methodology was started in 2001 and since then, lot of companies have shifted towards Agile Software Development (ASD). Many researchers did a lot of work on Software Project Estimation in ASD. Many estimation techniques have been introduced to estimate Software cost. But no could introduce a mechanism that could be called conclusive. The recent CHAOS summary reports show 75% software projects still failed due to inaccurate estimation. In ASD requirements are collected in the form of user stories. Effort estimation techniques are mainly based on user stories and most of these techniques ignore user story characteristics. The current study aims to explore the characteristics of user stories that can affect effort estimation in ASD which is helpful to improve the efficiency of current estimation techniques.
