The first Post-Confederation edition. "When Newfoundland entered Confederation on as a new Province on Mar.31, 1949, the area of Canada was extended overnight by 154,700 square miles and the population was increased by 348,000. The planning and editing of this edition of the Year Book has, in consequence, involved the incorporation of statistical data for Newfoundland. But since latest figures available are mainly from the 1945 Newfoundland Census, and are not in any sense comparable with data for other provinces, the problem has had to be met by the introduction of special sections for Newfoundland in appropriate chapters." - from the Preface.
