In order to download datasets, we must log in and specify the project with which the download is associated. That makes sense, and is fine with me. However, here's how the process unfolds each time:

Go to
Select 'Download Datasets'
Choose a survey by country/year and click the 'Data Available' link.
Get prompted to register / log in.
New page/tab opens.
Log in.
Choose project.
Choose country.
Select survey.
Download data.

This is unnecessarily laborious. Why not prompt users earlier in the process to log in if they want to download, and *don't* spawn a new page or tab?

Thanks for considering -- I'm really grateful for the DHS program and its products.
