Constructive dimension and constructive strong dimension are effectivizations of the Hausdorff and packing dimensions, respectively. Each infinite binary sequence A is assigned a dimension dim(A) in [0,1] and a strong dimension Dim(A) in [0,1].

Let DIM^alpha and DIMstr^alpha be the classes of all sequences of dimension alpha and of strong dimension alpha, respectively. We show that DIM^0 is properly Pi^0_2, and that for all Delta^0_2-computable alpha in (0,1], DIM^alpha is properly Pi^0_3.

To classify the strong dimension classes, we use a more powerful effective Borel hierarchy where a co-enumerable predicate is used rather than a enumerable predicate in the definition of the Sigma^0_1 level. For all Delta^0_2-computable alpha in [0,1), we show that DIMstr^alpha is properly in the Pi^0_3 level of this hierarchy. We show that DIMstr^1 is properly in the Pi^0_2 level of this hierarchy.

We also prove that the class of Schnorr random sequences and the class of computably random sequences are properly Pi^0_3.
