ACS 2014 1=Year County & Metro Tabulation Areas
May 2016 .. we are always seeking the most current data for areas of interest. This section provides an update on accessing unpublished ACS 1-year data for many counties. Learn about how you can access ACS 1-year estimates for 85 counties for which Census released only as 5-year estimates … and why it matters.
Data are tabulated from the Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS) as 1-year estimates (for areas with population 65,000 and over) and as 5-year estimates (for areas under 65,000 population). See more about ACS 1-year versus 5-year estimates in this section.
ACS 2014 1-year tabulation areas, as released by the Census Bureau included 817 of 3142 counties and 508 of 917 metros/CBSAs. There are 85 counties for which ACS 2914 1-year estimates were not released by Census but are derivable by subtracting the aggregate county components from metro totals in selected metros.

The next view shows a zoom-in to the Austin, TX metro. The four green shaded counties had ACS 2014 1-year estimates tabulated and released. The fifth Austin metro county, Caldwell shaded blue, was not tabulated but the ACS 1-year data are derivable by subtracting the sum of the four counties from the metro totals. Tabulated data for Caldwell was released only as ACS 2014 5-year estimates. A similar situation exists in many metros across the country.
Why this Matters
There are 85 counties for which ACS 2014 1 year data are available but not released/made available by Census as separately tabulated areas. This is important due to these considerations:
these are true annual estimates (as opposed to the other 5-year estimated counties)
they are more recent that 5-year estimates
they reflect conditions centric to one year
they enable time series/trend analysis
[as it turns out] they enable access to 1 year estimates for all counties (instead of some) in some metros
