1950 Census - Blank Forms

The vast majority of forms researchers will see in the 1950 Census are the standard population schedules, Form P1, 1950 Census of Population and Housing, which list up to 30 names with corresponding responses to the census questions collected by census enumerators. The reverse side of most 1950 census forms asked questions concerning the characteristics of the inhabitants' housing. The housing (reverse) side was not microfilmed (in 1952) at the same time as the population (front) side of the form, so they are no longer extant. Only the aggregate statistical housing data remains preserved in the published reports of the Bureau of the Census. Scattered throughout the population schedules, researchers may also find Individual Census Reports that were used for special circumstances. In other circumstances, information from individual reports were transcribed into the standard schedule forms. In certain areas, various household forms were used instead of the Form P1.
