Thanks for your reminding that ACS 2012 will be the first ACS product that incorporate
2010 Census PUMA.
I would also like to add that ACS 2012 is the first full data year to include increased
sample size which results estimated 9% reduction in MOEs across estimates.

Thanks Penelope for the reminder!
The good news with the ACS 2012 is that the Census-2010-based PUMAs (Public Use Microdata
Areas) are a "standard summary level" in American Factfinder. If you're
using American Factfinder (AFF), just select the "all geographic types" (instead
of "most requested geographic types") in the geographic selection window of
The 3-year (2010-2012) and 5-year (2008-2012) ACS data are scheduled for release over the
next several months, with the 5-year PUMS (I'll assume with the newer PUMAs) to be
released in January 2014.
10/24/13 -- 3 year ACS data; and the 1-year PUMS
12/5/13 -- 5 year ACS data; and the 3-year PUMS
1/23/14 - 5-year PUMS
Lots of new interesting data to plumb.
