Had the US (hypothetically) already entered World War II by early 1940, how would the 1940 US Census have been conducted? I am asking because I believe that the US Constitution requires the US to hold a census every ten years on years that are divisible by ten, and holding a census while the US would already be at war might be considerably more difficult than holding a census at a time of continued US neutrality, no?

Anyway, what do all of you think in regards to this?
