Can I get permission for a Data Visualization class to use a data extract rather than each student downloading?

I am teaching a Data Visualization class and I'd like to give the students some of this data for their projects.

Since this is "redistribution" I need to ask for permission.

I could just tell the students to register and download data themselves, but I thought it would be more efficient to provide them with a CSV file.

Thank you,

As long as you are disseminating for educational purposes you are allowed to proceed without requiring each of your students to apply for an IPUMS account. Although some professors do like to encourage and familiarize their students with the IPUMS data extract system by requiring them to fill out IPUMS accounts.
