Description: 1950 Census - Infant Enumeration. Prior to the 1950 Census, experience had shown that infants were occasionally missed by enumerators visiting households to conduct the census. To improve census coverage for the 1950 Census, enumerators completed an "infant card" for each baby born after January 1, 1950.
