Space groups P1 and Cc: how are they doing?


A survey of recent entries in the Cambridge Structural Database suggests that the percentage of structures described in space groups of inappropriately low symmetry has decreased from about 10% in the early 2000s to less than 5% today for space group Cc, but that for space group P1 it remains close to 8%.
