We employ the concept of entanglement and relative local entropies to provide a quantitative measure of the strength of correlations in interacting electronic systems. As an application we solve the Hubbard model within the dynamical mean-field theory and extract the entanglement local entropy as well as the relative local entropy, using different Hartree-Fock-like ground states as reference states. The strength of the correlations in the paramagnetic and antiferromagnetic phase, expressed by the relative entropies with respect to the Hartree-Fock solutions, is discussed.
