I am using data extracts I downloaded from IPUMS USA (both Census and ACS), CPS, and others for research. As part of the publication process many journals require replication files. Is it ok to share the downloaded and merged individual level data? If not, is there a way to share the data extract links so people can download the same files used in the analysis?
I think this is a common issue, but could not find a definite answer in FAQ, although some other people have asked for specific subsets of data (e.g. https://forum.ipums.org/search?q=share%20data%20extract or Sharing Public NHIS Data). The suggestion in the last link is actually good. Making DOI links or something similar for data extracts.
