The Community Services Information System (COMSIS) has been made available to the community services sector as part of the department's commitment to sharing data with the sector and the broader community.
COMSIS provides a single comprehensive source of local, regional and state-wide data for over 200 datasets. Data topics in COMSIS include: demography, education, employment, family, housing, income, remoteness and disadvantage.
COMSIS is a dynamic database which is improved and updated over time as a result of additional or more recent data becoming available, successful negotiations with data custodians to release relevant data and feedback from the sector about its needs.
COMSIS was built and is maintained by the Government Statistician, a portfolio office of Queensland Treasury, for the department.
COMSIS is accessed by username and password obtained through online self-registration. COMSIS includes training material that users can follow at their own pace. For more information or assistance in using COMSIS please email COMSIS_support@communities.qld.gov.au.
