||The aim of this study was to evaluate empirically the reliability of cohort-nested case-control study designs using data of a cohort of beryllium workers of a previous study. Empirical evaluations showed that the study design produced a biased case-control lagged exposure difference under the null hypothesis and could not distinguish qualitatively between null and alternate hypotheses. Empirical evaluation allowed checking on the results generated from a complex study design. It gave useful insight into the behaviour of study designs that would not otherwise have been readily deducible.
