The Henderson poverty line, developed in the 1960s and early 1970s, is no longer widely used, and other income-based approaches to poverty remain contentious.
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).
Even today, the contemporary calculations of the Henderson poverty line provide a measure with and without home ownership.
Even today, much of the acrimonious debate over poverty measurement takes the Henderson poverty line as the benchmark, as do many of the studies that have appeared in the pages of AJSI.
Jarvis and Jenkins 1998, 2000; Krause 1998) have favoured setting poverty at half the mean income rather than half the median, while in Australia others have continued to rely on the Henderson poverty line, which was central to the 1975 Commission of Inquiry into Poverty chaired by Ronald Henderson (Commission of Inquiry into Poverty 1975).
