We consider the sets of quasi-regular points in the countable symbolic space. We measure the sizes of the sets by Billingsley-Hausdorff dimension defined by Gibbs measures. It is shown that the dimensions of those sets, always bounded from below by the convergence exponent of the Gibbs measure, are given by a variational principle, which generalizes Li and Ma’s result and Bowen’s result.
