RSV-NET Interactive Dashboard

The Respiratory Syncytial Virus Hospitalization Surveillance Network (RSV-NET) is a network  that conducts active, population-based surveillance for laboratory-confirmed RSV-associated hospitalizations in children younger than 18 years of age and adults. The network currently includes 58 counties in 12 states that participate in the Emerging Infections Program (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, and Tennessee) or the Influenza Hospitalization Surveillance Program (Michigan and Utah). RSV-NET covers almost 8% of the U.S. population.

The rates presented on the RSV-NET interactive dashboard can be used to follow trends and comparisons of RSV-associated hospitalizations in different demographic groups and across seasons. However, the rates are unadjusted and do not account for undertesting, differing provider or facility testing practices, and diagnostic test sensitivity. The true burden of RSV-associated hospitalizations in the United States may not be represented by these numbers.

RSV-NET hospitalization data are preliminary and subject to change as more data become available. Case counts and rates for recent hospital admissions are subject to reporting lags that might increase around holidays or during periods of increased hospital utilization. As new data are received each month, previous case counts and rates are updated accordingly.

1) Select a topic of interest

To use the RSV-NET interactive dashboard, select a topic to see specific data trends. Topics include: age group, race and ethnicity, sex, season, and state. Each topic of interest can be viewed by week, month, or as cumulative rates.

2) Select a filter of interest

Topics of interest can be filtered by age group, race and ethnicity, sex, season, and state. Filters vary by topic as not all topics have filters available.

3) Select different ways to view the data

The data can be displayed in a graph or as a table. Right click anywhere in the graph for a tabular view. Hovering your mouse over or selecting a data point or bar in the graph will display detailed information. Some graphs allow you to hide or show data from the legend for detailed analysis.
