RMSE is the Root Mean Square Error. The RMSE will always be larger or equal to the MAE. The RMSE metric evaluates how well a model can predict a continuous value. The RMSE units are the same units as your data’s dependent variable/target (so if that’s dollars, this is in dollars), which is useful for understanding whether the size of the error is meaningful or not. The smaller the RMSE, the better the model’s performance. RSME is sensitive to outliers. If your data does not have outliers, then examine the Mean Average Error (MAE), which is not as sensitive to outliers.
