# Solved – Standardised mean absolute error (SMAE) and how to calculate it

I am using the mean absolute error

``mean(abs(obs - pred)) ``

as one of the measures assessing the fit of my model. I would also like to have a standardised measure ranging 0 – 1 to compliment this. Given that there is MSE and SMSE, how does one go about to get a standardised MAE?

thank you.
