Abstract: We express the relative class number of an imaginary abelian number field K of prime power conductor as a sort of Maillet determinant. Thereby we obtain explicit relative class number formulas for fields K of conductor p, $ p \geq 3$ prime, and degree $ 2d = [K:\mathbb{Q}] \leq 10$, in terms of sums of 2d-power residues. In particular, tables are given for $ p \leq 10000$.
