Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD) calculated in the following equation:
The features extracted are Entropy, Energy, Standard Deviation and Mean absolute deviation.
For milk production, the lowest values for the residual mean square (RME), mean absolute deviation (MAD), mean squared prediction error (MSPE) and Index, were observed through Brody II followed by QLF and LHF (Table 1).

To test formally for adequacy of trends we use a nonparametric Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD) test (Hussain M A and Ansari M.
The results reveal that Finland, Denmark, Ireland (it was possible to calculate mean absolute deviations at the NUTS2 level only for these countries as they were divided into regions only at that level), Sweden, The Netherlands, and Bulgaria are quite homogeneous by the cultural dimensions under discussion.
In Table 2, it is seen that the present correlation, Equation 15 has the least mean absolute deviation at 18%.
Some examples of specific topics discussed in the 14 included papers are: benchmarking the operating efficiency of US airlines, cooperative public service advertising strategies for a supply chain system, multi-criteria performance measurement for public and private sector enterprises, and a meta-goal programming model for asset allocation of mutual funds under the mean absolute deviation.
