I just signed up for an account to the DDL. I've tried to access three datasets and receive the same message in each instance; "You do not have permission to view this dataset". I've tried logging out and back in and receive the same message. Are all datasets posted to the DDL available for download and if so, am i receiving this message in error?

Hello Charles and thank you for your question. Not all datasets on USAID's Development Data Library (DDL) [https://data.usaid.gov/] are publicly available for download. Some are designated as private, intended for internal USAID use. Please email dataservices@usaid.gov to request access to specific non-public datasets on the DDL and the team will begin work on your request.

Best wishes, Morgan Daniels
