Dear Matt,
I totally agree with you and I am aware of fact that atomic charge are just model. Maybe I was not clear enough but my problem is that charges are not consistent with published values.
P.S. input files are named "*_all_electrons*". This is mistake, calculation is not all electron, it is a relict from previous calculation.

Mulliken charges are not real observables - they are strongly dependent on the basis set, and they do not converge as you make the basis set complete. Check a quantum chemistry textbook for a good discussion ('Computational Chemistry', Errol Lewars for instance).
Something more quantitative can come from something like Bader charge analysis (which needs external processing of a total_charge_density cube file).

Recently I was working on NO2-dimer and now I need help from you. Thing is that I am running gas phase calculation of NO2 cis-dimer. After program successfully  finish GEOMETRIC OPTIMIZATION output configuration is consistent with already published papers. Problem is in the MULLIKEN charges. Charges are too small and not consistent with published values(I am using same basis set).!-----------------------------------------------------------------------------!                     Mulliken Population Analysis
