What Does SPF Really Stand For?

We all know that SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, but what does it really represent

SPF measures your skin's ability to remain in the sun before getting burned with sunscreen, and then without. 

This only measures your level of burn, which only comes from the UVB rays (short-range rays).
