You could try the following (table 46.1). I don't know if it's what you want; if not, Google does a very good job of locating things.

Data sets from D F Andrews and A M Herzberg, Data: A Collection of Problems from Many Fields for the Student and Research Worker, New York, NY etc.: Springer-Verlag 1985 (SF 6 AND)
(ftp://utstat.utoronto.ca/pub/david/data-collect) <ftp://utstat.utoronto.ca/pub/david/data-collect/>.

Dear Statalisters

Apologies for a non-Stata question, if I may.

Would anyone have reference to an electronic source for the prostate cancer data set from 1967-69, used by Lunn & McNeil (M. Lunn and D. McNeil. Applying Cox regression to competing risks. Biometrics. 51 (2):524-532, 1995) in their well known paper on competing risks.

The source for this data was: D. F. Andrews and A. M. Herzberg. Data: A collection of problems from many fields for the student and research worker, New York:Springer-Verlag, 1985. The same data was used by Kay in a 1986 article on competing risks in Biometrics (R. Kay. Treatment effects in competing-risks analysis of prostate cancer data. Biometrics. 42 (1):203-211, 1986.)

(It will take a couple of weeks or longer now for me to be able to get the book on loan due to the Xmas-New Year break).


Thanks in advance for any reference
