In other words, it measures the quality of the fit between the actual data and the predicted model. RMSE is one of the most frequently used measures of the goodness of fit of generalized regression models.

RMSE> for Regression

In the application of regression models, unless the relationship or correlation is perfect, the predicted values are more or less different from the actual observations.

Large distances are indicative of large errors. However, for ...
