Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
Among all active surveillance eligible patients, patients were included if parent/legal guardian had provided informed consent, and if an adequate stool specimen was provided within 7 days of hospital presentation. Patients needed to be aged <15 months at RV1 program implementation (November 1, 2011), AND aged ≥16 weeks at symptom onset.

Reporting Groups
Rotavirus-negative All stool samples were initially tested for rotavirus via enzyme immunoassay. Patients with a negative result are included in this group.
Rotavirus -Positive All stool were initially tested for rotavirus via enzyme immunoassay. Rotavirus-positives were confirmed via real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reactions (RT-PCR). RT-PCR results were used in the event of discordant EIA results. Rotavirus genotyping was performed.
