Nancy E. Reichman is Professor of Pediatrics at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Visiting Professor of Economics at Princeton University, and Visiting Research Collaborator at the Center for Research on Child Wellbeing at Princeton University. She received a Ph.D. from the City University of New York Graduate Center in 1993.

Her primary research area is maternal and child health, with published studies on effects of parental age on birth outcomes, effects of public policy on birth outcomes, racial and ethnic disparities in birth outcomes and child health, effects of neighborhood characteristics on birth outcomes, effects of prenatal care on pediatric health care and child health, and how birth outcomes shape children’s development.

Her secondary research area involves the effects of having children in poor health on their families - in particular, the parents’ relationship status, labour supply, welfare receipt, health insurance status, housing, social interactions, and criminal behavior.

Her third research area involves data quality in social science and public health research. For example, she has extensively studied the quality of birth certificate data in the United States and participated (by invitation) in an 8-member expert panel that reviewed the Natality Statistics program of the Department of Health and Human Services of the Centers for Disease Control. Her most recent research focuses on the effects of welfare reform in the U.S. on social behaviors and on health across the lifespan in an international comparative context.
