We consider self-similar Cantor sets Λ ⊂ ℝ which are either homogeneous and Λ - Λ is an interval, or not homogeneous but having thickness greater than one. We have a natural labeling of the points of Λ which comes from its construction. In case of overlaps among the cylinders of Λ, there are some "bad" pairs (τ, ω) of labels such that τ and ω label the same point of Λ. We express how much the correlation dimension of Λ is smaller than the similarity dimension in terms of the size of the set of "bad" pairs of labels.
