In his dissertation project, Keletso Makofane investigates the impact of family relationships on health across large communities in South Africa. This theme eludes classical approaches to causal inference, which tend to treat people as if they were independent from one another. Makofane assumes the opposite and uses causal inference methods to answer the question: how do the resources available to one person affect the health of another?
