Anyone measuring Technical Debt Ratio?

I was wondering if someone here was measuring the Technical Debt Ratio of their project and finding it useful?

I’ve recently experimented following this definition of Technical Debt Ratio using Codacy for calculating the Remediation Cost:

TDR = ( RC / DC ) x 100%
Where:
Technical Debt Ratio: TDR
Remediation Cost: RC [hours]
Development Cost: DC [hours]

DC = CPL x LOC
Where:
Lines Of Code: LOC [lines]
Cost Per Line: CPL [hours]
