    It has been noted that each Enumeration District (ED) in the 1950 census see smaller that earlier censuses. This and shorter pages allows quicker finding of persons/families. The biggest problem I have found is that when I find the address at which the person/family should reside, Murphy takes over as invariably the entry is not a name but a notation such as "no one at home". This means that I have to look through the following pages to find the "re-visit" when someone is home.
