ICPSR is the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, a membership-based organization which acquires data from individual researchers, polling agencies, governmental and international agencies. ICPSR maximizes the availability and utilization of data by obtaining the data and technical documentation, adding SPSS and/or SAS control, etc., and then making these resources available for its members.
