    I would like to understand the function of the words "variables" , "worth" in the sentence below:

    The data set contains 20 variables worth of information about 2,427 customers, along with an indication of whether or not that customer churned (left the company)

    Re: worth

    Each variable is an attribute about the customer or the customer's habit, e.g. average number of calls per day, average number of minutes per call, total number of minutes per month, total megabytes of data used per month, etc.

    Oh lovely. Now I know that my mobile operator refers to me in terms of milk when I leave!
