Median duration of activities by temperature

As the figure below shows, temperature is associated with time usage in the New York City. Most notably, on especially warm days (>25 degrees C) people spend more time cooking, working, and relaxing, whereas on particularly cold days (<10 degrees C), they tend to do more shopping and least amount of home improvement. The full project will include a wider range of cities and weather variations. In addition, I intend to analyze the data in such a way to take into account regional and seasonal variation in weather patterns in order to more finely discern the effects of day-to-day fluctuations in temperature, which would be particularly useful for companies that wish to provide focused services to individuals on specific days.
