Mean absolute deviation, frequently used to assess the accuracy of theoretical methods, significantly underestimates the conventional thermochemical uncertainty, and thus produces a number of unintended consequences. Two groups of procedures for determining the accuracy of computed thermochemical quantities are outlined: one relying on estimates that are based on experience, the other on benchmarking. Benchmarking state-of-the-art theory requires a source of highly accurate thermochemical data, such as Active Thermochemical Tables.
