You could use GSS, as it is popular and students will probably be well to know of it.  However, there is also plenty of public domain data on the web, a lot from the US government.  I've compiled a bunch of it here

Some examples are

PD-Data   population infant mortality and life expectancy by country from US Census International Data Base, 1980-2000.

PD-Data2   world factbook (migration, infant mortality, gdp per capita, literacy, population, phone lines and per capita), International database (infant mortality), USDA data (food expenditure as percent of total expenditures, percent of food expenditure by type of food).

USDA GDP data   GDP and GDP per capita, population, by world region and countries, 1970 to 2007.
Updated version (to 2008) is here  
All are public domain, which means you can do anything you want with them, without having to ask anyone for permission.  You can use them to teach, do research, publish.

Hope you find these useful.
