Queensland Compact News - COMSIS is now available

In September 2009, the Community Services Information System (COMSIS) was released to the sector as part of the government's commitment to the Queensland Compact. COMSIS provides fast and free access to accurate and up-to-date data at a state, local government and statistical local area level to support evidence-based decision making. Also available are Disadvantage-Need-Risk (DNR) rankings which are a method to identify and rank the high priority groups/locations across Queensland using a combination of measures of disadvantage, need and risk. To assist with the promotion of this valuable resource, a brochure has been produced to provide more information about COMSIS. To access both PDF and RTF versions of the brochure, please click here
