In this paper we propose an efficient statistical method for estimating the moments of the secondary γ multiplicity distribution in high energy bubble chamber processes. Our method requires relatively small statistics, even if the detection losses are considerable, as is demonstrated by calculating the dispersion of the secondary π° multiplicity distribution from 1200 events with a detection probability of about 25% for γ's.
