Completeness of Enumeration of Infants Related to: Residence, Race, Birth Month, Age and Education of Mother, Occupation of Father

This report presents statistics on the extent to which infants born in the first three months of 1950 were enumerated as of April 1, 1950, and on reasons for the missing of infants, by characteristics of the infant and its parents.

In addition to the basic publications and special reports of the 1950 Censuses of Population, Housing, and Agriculture, there will be a number of procedural studies which make available special information on how these censuses were taken, and on the quality of the results. These studies, of which this report is one, are being issued separately as a numbered series, "Procedural Studies of the 1950 Censuses."

The data in this report are based on tabulations of data from birth records, census records, and returns from a special mail inquiry. Most of the materials are from a complete count, but some are based on samples.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
