Hospitalization of children with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is common and costly. Traditional sources of hospitalization data, useful for public health decision-makers and physicians to make decisions, are themselves costly to acquire and are subject to delays from gathering to publication. Here we use Google searches for RSV as a proxy for RSV hospitalizations. Methods: Searches for "RSV" and numbers of RSV hospitalizations in WA, MD, FL, and CT were examined from 2004--2018.
