In real counting systems, there exist dead times, during which the systems cannot correspond to incoming signals. Generally, the dead times are considered to fluctuate. In this paper a method in order to derive a probability density function f(s) of fluctuating dead time s is described. A time interval distribution was used to derive f(s). The method can become a promising tool for investigating the mechanism of real counting systems. As an example our method was applied to a Geiger-Muller counter in order to evaluate its aging effect
