I'm unable to find the 1940 and 1950 US Federal Census records, or Birth or Death records.  Where are these records located on the web site, please?

I know this is an old post, but the correct answer is that federal law allows release of individual census data 72 years after the census date, so the 1950 census will be released in April 2022. As when the 1940 census was released in 2012 it will probably bea few months after that before a full index is available.

1950 hasn't been released yet, the census bureau won't release the detailed records until 2020.

 

1940 is available under Research -> Census & Voter Lists.
