Subject   st: interpreting time ratios in survival analysis

In -streg, an option is -tr, which reports time ratios rather than coefficients for survival models. My question is about the interpretation of a time ratio. If the estimated time ratio equals, say, 0.88, how am I to interpret that result? How do I interpret it for a continuous varaible and for a dummy variable? Thanks.
