The 1850 federal census is the seventh census of the United States. It was authorized by Congress on May 23, 1850 (9 Stat. 428), and was begun on June 1, 1850. The enumeration was to be completed within five months.

Minnesota became a territory in 1849. The Minnesota Territory in 1850 had five western counties (Pembina, Mahkahta, Wahnahta, Dakotah, and Wabashaw) on the territory's western boundary extending deep into Indian lands in what is today North Dakota and South Dakota .

The 1850 federal census of the "Pembina District" of the Minnesota Territory is the first official United States government list of white inhabitants residing in what is today North Dakota. The official 1850 census enumerated 1,134 persons, but the true total was actually 1,116 persons, as three families were counted twice.

The inhabitants of "Pembina" were mostly
metis (mixed-blood) buffalo hunters, fur trappers, and voyageurs of French-Canadian and Indian descent who were residing in the northern portion of the Red River Valley just south of Canada on the present-day Minnesota-North Dakota border.
