Dear all,

i'm using gompertz regression gamma frailty. . the result is :
betha (X1)=  1,94486    and hazard ratio is 6,99264

X1 is binary indicator of smoking status. event is death.
How to interpret it?
 it means that  cigarette smokers die at 6,99264 the rate of
comparable non-smoker and cigarette smokers will die 1,94486 days
sooner than non-smoker .  is it correct?

thank you.
