Abstract: Compositional tables can be considered a continuous counterpart to the well-known contingency tables. Their cells, which generally contain positive real numbers rather than just counts, carry relative information about relationships between two factors. Hence, compositional tables can be seen as a generalization of (vector) compositional data. Due to their relative character, compositions are commonly expressed in orthonormal coordinates using a sequential binary partition prior to being further processed by standard statistical tools. Unfortunately, the resulting coordinates do not respect the two-dimensional nature of compositional tables. Information about relationship between factors is thus not well captured. The aim of this paper is to present a general system of orthonormal coordinates with respect to the Aitchison geometry, which allows for an analysis of the interactions between factors in a compositional table. This is achieved using logarithms of odds ratios, which are also widely used in the context of contingency tables.
