The “Source” entry for each data set indicates the best place to obtain it. Where possible, this is the official site where the data set is maintained, which should always have the most up-to-date version. Also note that some data sets that are listed as being available by purchase only can be purchased by an entire institution through a site license; interested users may want to check with their school's library to see whether these resources are already available to them before paying the fee to access the data individually.
