Jerome Deichert is director of the Center for Public Affairs Research at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Among his other research interests, Deichert has explored the characteristics of the direct-care work force by analyzing secondary data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Along with colleagues in the UNO Gerontology Department, he is a member of the Elder Care Workforce Research Triangle.
Deichert has a master's degree in economics from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.
