The loss of covalency in a strained molecule compared to a strain-free reference molecule is used to estimate molecular strain. Results for several ring systems show that strain arises mainly due to the bent nature of the C---C bonds, which leads to loss of a valency in these bonds. The reduced covalency of the C---H bonds is also seen to contribute to strain.
