st: stptime person-time

I am working on survival data. When I use stset and then stptime, my
person-time results are huge numbers. Are they in days or years?  It seems
like I get the right incidence rates if I use per(365000).

Here are the two lines of code I'm using:
stset endfollowup, failure(fail) origin(time mdy(12,31,2002)) enter(time beginfollowup) id(idpatient)
stptime, by(vaccinated) per(365000) at (0 365 731 1096 1461 1826 2196 2557)

If I use per(1000), my rates are too small to be possible. And I need to have
the right number of person-time in years.

Thank you in advance,
