CARY, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina software company is doing so well finding fraud for state and local governments it's hiring more analysts. Cary-based SAS Institute said Tuesday it's expanding a unit that uses software to comb through databases to uncover patterns of waste, fraud, threats to public safety, and which public schools are effective. The unit now employs more than 200, most with advanced degrees. Los Angeles County uses SAS to uncover fraud among those getting child-care and public assistance benefits. SAS says it's confident state and local governments will increase their demand for the company's analytical software and services. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
