Here is a link to a web page containing
The
data sets in the Aalen, Borgan, Gjessing textbook.
Thanks to Per Andersen and Orwulf Borgan, we also have a
more complete version of the
famous malignant melanoma dataset, which is usually
presented in an abridged form that does not allow for the
reproduction of results seen in several well-known papers,
such as Andersen (1982, Biometrics) and
Arjas (1988, JASA).

There is also the
oropharynx carcinoma
dataset from the Kalbfleisch and Prentice (2002) book.
