The book Computational Actuarial Science, with R is officially out. In the introduction of the book, and on the website of CRC, it is mentioned that the datasets can be found “in an R package on CRAN“, which is unfortunately incorrect. Some datasets are too large, so the package can not be uploaded on CRAN. Hopefully, Christophe host the package on his website.

A collection of datasets, originally for the book ‘Computational Actuarial Science with R’ edited by Arthur Charpentier (CAS with R). Now, the package contains a large variety of actuarial datasets.
