I read the Paul Allison's survival book that has one chapter of competing
risk. BUt he was really talking about the cause-specific hazard, not
competing risk hazard. Also, recent paper from CASCADE study in Europe, the
outcome is AIDS defined illness and they calculated competing risk hazard by
censoring subjects who had uninterested illness at the end of follow-up,
instead of the date of that illness happened. But this strategy obviously
doesn't work for mortality.

Any help/thought. Appreciate!

Maybe this reference could be useful:
1) Lunn M Biometrics, 51: 524-532, 1995;
2) Tai BC, Stat in Medicine, 20: 661-684, 2001.

Lunn' s approach to competing risk modeling can be implemented using STATA.
