Derived varieties were invented by P. Cohn in . Derived varieties of a given type were invented by the authors in . In the paper we deal with the derived variety Vσ of a given variety, by a fixed hypersubstitution σ. We introduce the notion of the dimension of a variety as the cardinality κ of the set of all proper derived varieties of V included in V. We examine dimensions of some varieties in the lattice of all varieties of a given type τ . Dimensions of varieties of lattices and all subvarieties of regular bands are determined.
