Joel Weintraub Blank 1950 Census Forms

Joel D. Weintraub, PhD

Prior to 1950, the census sheets were printed with a population schedule (what we loosely refer to as the census) on one side and a second population on the other side. In order to distinguish these, the front side was numbered with an A following the sheet number, and the back side with a B.

In 1950 that was changed. One side was the population schedule and the other was the housing schedule. There was no longer a need for the A and B designations.
Below are images of these two schedules.

These PDF files are quite large and Firefox cannot display them. Instead you will get a blank PDF document.

You can get around that by changing your settings so that adobe and not firefox is used for displaying pdf files. You do this as follows:
1. Go to TOOLS menu and select SETTINGS
2. On the GENERAL tab, scroll down to APPLICATIONS
3. For each line that mentions PDF, set the action to USE ADOBE ACROBAT DC
If you prefer not to change your settings, you can do the following:

Look at the top line of the document (the line that contains the AUTOMATIC ZOOM field and you go all the way to the right side of that line, you will see a few icons (see below). One of those icons is the download icon (a folder with a down arrow). If you click on that, the pdf file that you can't see will be downloaded to your computer and you can view it there.
