Nancy Neumann is an Associate Researcher at Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago. She uses her knowledge of SAS programming language to generate longitudinal database structures that summarize children’s experiences in foster care for the Multistate Foster Care Data Archive (FCDA). In the last 10 years, Neumann has helped to organize administrative data for more than 25 states into the structure of the longitudinal database utilized by the FCDA. In addition to creating the longitudinal database, Neumann also creates the data files that are used to populate the FCDA web tool. She has helped other researchers utilize the longitudinal data to evaluate topics such as placement outcomes, trends over time in the utilization of foster care, and demographic shifts in the population of foster children. Neumann also helps to develop the longitudinal data files for the Pennsylvania and New York City Title IV-E Waiver projects.
