Provision for the

This volume presents statistics on the number of inhabitants and the characteristics of the population of the Territories and possessions of the United States. The data are based upon tabulations from the Seventeenth Decennial Census of the population of the United States, its Territories and possessions, conducted as of April 1, 1950. Seventeenth Decennial Census was made in the act providing for the Fifteenth and subsequent decennial censuses, approved June 18, 1929, as amended.

The major portion of the information compiled from the Census of Population of 1950 is contained in Volume I, Number of Inhabitants, and in Volume II, Characteristics of the Population. These final volumes first appeared in the form of three series of bulletins: Series P-A, “Number of Inhabitants"; Series P-B, "General Characteristics"; and Series P-C, "Detailed Characteristics."

Final Population Volumes I and II are assembled as follows:

Population Volume I comprises the Series P-A bulletins, thereby providing in a single publication the distribution of the Nation's inhabitants among and within the States and the Territories, possessions, etc.

Population Volume II comprises all three series of bulletins (Series P-A, P-B, and P-C). This volume is divided into a United States Summary part, a part for each State, and parts for the Territories and possessions, each part comprising the three bulletins for that area. All reports for a given State are thereby made available within a single binding. The parts for the Territories and possessions, which are presented here within a single binding, include the chapters representing the P-A, P-B, and P-C bulletins for Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, and the P-A and P-B bulletins covering the smaller possessions.

The materials presented here were prepared under the supervision of Howard G. Brunsman, Chief, Population and Housing Division, and Robert B. Voight, Assistant Chief for Operations, with the assistance of Edwin D. Goldfield, Program Coordinator. They were prepared by Joel Williams, Chief, Territories and Possessions Section, assisted by Florence C. Lindsay, Mildred Swearngin, Laura L. Heriot, Charles P. Brinkman, and Evelynne Gordon. Subject review was under the supervision of Dr. Henry S. Shryock, Jr., Assistant Chief for Population Statistics. The compilation of the statistics was under the direction of Morton A. Meyer, Chief, Statistical Procedures Section, assisted by Edward I. Lober and Eva Tolchinsky, and Milton D. Lieberman, Chief, Processing Operations Section, assisted by Lillian I. Hoffman and Juanita A. Wright. Sampling procedures were under the direction of Joseph Steinberg, Chief, Statistical Sampling Section, assisted by Joseph Waksberg and Albert Mindlin. The technical editorial work and planning were under the supervision of Mildred M. Russell, assisted by Dorothy M. Belzer.

The collection of the information on which these statistics were based was under the supervision of Lowell T. Galt, then Chief, Field Division, with the assistance of Jack B. Robertson, John M. Bell, Leon S. Geoffrey, and Alfred I. Jacobs. The geographic work was under the supervision of Clarence E. Batschelet, Chief, Geography Division, with the assistance of Dr. Robert C. Klove, William T. Fay, and Harvey B. Mitchell. The tabulations were under the supervision of C. F.

Van Aken, Chief, Machine Tabulation Division, with the assistance of Howard T. Jenkins and Dorothy P. Armstrong. Robert H. Brooks of the Administrative Service Division was responsible for printing arrangements.

In addition to those of the present staff, important contributions to the general planning of the 1950 Census were made by the late J. C. Capt, Director of the Census until his retirement on August 17, 1949, and Dr. Philip M. Hauser, Acting Director until March 9, 1950.
