Does ComStock have characteristic distribution TSV files similar to those from ResStock available to the public?

I've read that some of "the data sets that ComStock uses are proprietary or access-controlled," but I'd assume that once these have been aggregated and converted to probability distributions this would not longer be a concern.

No, but the metadata.tsv file with characteristics is available, which you can use to derive building characteristic distributions.

Metadata files are found here:
