The recent Pension Review, for example, presented comparisons between existing pension levels and two widely-used poverty lines (the Henderson poverty line and one set at 50 per cent of median income), even though it cautioned that 'it considers neither of these to be a particularly robust measure of wellbeing' (Harmer 2009: 34, Chart 6).
