For indexes like the S&P 500 or the Russell 3000, look for figures from the data's vendors, like Standard & Poor.

Because of the need to factor in dividends, splits (and other corporate actions), index reconstitutions and changing weights, calculating total return on an index can be a fairly involved process that often requires that the person calculating it exercise some judgment - so it is difficult to prescribe a set way to calculate them.
