The Citizenship merit badge went through a revamp replacing the retired Civics merit badge. After a short period of time, in 1952, and after extensive testing and reviewing, the Citizenship pamphlet served as the core of 4 individual merit badges. Merit badges earned were based off of those Scouts that started or earned the Civics (or prototype Citizenship) merit badge.  After 1952 Scouts could only earn one of the four disciplines found in the Citizenship merit badge pamphlet.
