1950 Census, Enumeration Districts for Centre County

The 1950 U.S. Census population schedule will be released on April 1, 2022. At that time, Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org will begin a community indexing project, using computer-aided handwriting recognition to generate a preliminary index, and humans to review and correct the index. This project will take a few months…

Meanwhile, you can still browse the census images directly, but it will help to narrow your focus to one or two Enumeration Districts (such as a township or a part of a borough). On this page, you will find a transcription of the Census Bureau’s Descriptions of the Enumeration Districts for Centre County, as augmented by stevemorse.org . You will also find Enumeration District maps created by the Census Bureau. The county wide map is divided into East and West parts; separate maps are provided for Bellefonte and State College boroughs, which have multiple Eds within their boundaries.
