The US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has begun work on the 1960 census but it won’t be released to the public until April 2032 due to the “72-year” rule.
The 1950 US census unindexed was released online April 1, 2022 and different genealogical organizations are busy indexing it. There are 41,000 microfilms for the 1960 Census and increase from the 1950 Census of 6,373 microfilm rolls—more than 6 times more than the 1950 number of microfilm rolls.
The reason there are so many more microfilm rolls for 1960 than the 1950 census according to NARA is: “The 1960 census was conducted mostly by self-enumeration so each household has a separate census form. Separate forms meant more paper, and more paper meant more microfilm (photograph) images. The paper forms were destroyed after microfilming. In addition, 1960 census microfilm rolls tend to be around 100 feet in length, which is much shorter than most microfilm rolls from prior census years.”
