This paper briefly describes statistical methods for analyzing imprecise compositional data that might be elicited from approximate measurement or from expert judgments. Two alternative approaches are discussed: Log-ratio transforms and probability-ratio transforms. The first is well-established and the second is under development by the author. The primary focus in this paper is on generalized linear models for predicting imprecise compositional data.
