A statistical estimate for generalized dimensions of a set \(A \subset \mathbb{R}^m\) based on the computation of average distances to the closest points in a sample of elements of A is given. For smooth manifolds with Lebesgue measures and for self-similar fractals with self-similar measures, the estimate is proved to be consistent.
