The present paper deals with the application of the method of intensity statistics to the determination of the crystal symmetries in the cases of the non-ideal, mostly inorganic substances. It was found that in the case of the investigated non-ideal substances the curves of centric, respectively, acentric projections have their own characteristic shapes which strongly differ from each other, as well as from the theoretical N(z)-distribution functions. On the basis of these findings it is possible to apply these kinds of centric and acentric N(z)-curves to decide whether a centre of symmetry is present or absent in the investigated structures.
