Google is your friend.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%26P_500
About 3/4 of the way down:
"CAGR: 9.94% 1970 thru 2012"

http://financeandinvestments.blogspot.com/2012/06/historical...
"The annualized return for the S&P 500 Index (and its precursor S&P 90 Index) between 1926 and 2011 was about 9.77%. "

Down near the bottom of the page:
The following table shows average annual results for each decade:
Average Annual Total Return 1950-2009: 11.0%

Also:
"According to Standard & Poor's, the dividend component was responsible for 44% of the total return of the last 80 years of the index."


Really, this is common knowledge among people who have any familiarity with the stock market.
