The Comparative Productivity of Programming Languages

I would have expected programmers to be about as efficient in C# as in Java. Of course it is possible the underlying statistical model is not correct for making a statement like this. E.g. in the sample there were many seasoned Java programmers but on the other hand many relative junior C# programmers. If so, was this taken care of in the regression?
