It is the focus of attention that texture experiments deal with real samples which consist of a finite number of crystallites of different size. Because of this the main sample-induced statistics (grain statistics and grain-size statistics) have essential influence on the quality of experimental data. This article quantitatively analyzes the dependence of the integral error on the parameters of the mentioned statistics and the approximation goodness.
