Interrelations between the degree of uniaxial preferred orientation and the intensities and widths of selected X-ray diffraction peaks are analyzed within the March–Dollase approach. Simple analytical expressions are developed which relate the degree of preferred orientation to the rocking curve width of the strongest diffraction peak or the intensity ratio of two diffraction peaks, one of them being originated in the preferably orientated atomic planes.
