Taken in April of 1950, the census encompasses the then 48 states in the continental U.S. and its territories: then Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, the Panama Canal Zone, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Alaska and Hawaii were later added as states in 1959. 150 million Americans were enumerated in the 1950 U.S. Census, an increase of 14.5% over the 1940 U.S. Census. The MyHeritage 1950 United States Census Index collection contains names, ages, locations, households, relations, genders, races, education, places of birth, and other details of those who were enumerated.
