This should have been: The relative proportion is the number of euros/grams/units in one category per euro/gram/unit (i.e. singular rather than plural) in the rest. The similarity with the odds may be clearer when applying them to concrete examples: If we are studying the proportion of a city's budget spent on its own organization, than the relative proportion would be the expected number of euros spent on organization per euro spent on other things. If we are studying the probability of union membership, than the odds would be the expected number of union members per person who is not an union member.
