The Census Bureau may not submit a final count of the U.S. population until after President-elect Joe Biden takes office, according to internal documents. The department is set to miss the Dec. 31 deadline for the first time since Congress instituted it 40 years ago, announcing late Wednesday that it plans to submit the data as early in 2021 as possible. There is no penalty for missing the deadline.
