Abstract [en]

Weather is fundamentally a perception rather than an objective measure. This study uses data from a four-wave travel diary survey and aims to answer two research questions, i.e. 1. How individuals from different socio-demographic groups perceive weather. 2. How an individual's weather perception affects his/her leisure activity participation decision. A thermal indicator, Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) is used as a synthetic index that represents the thermal environment. Panel static/dynamic ordered Probit model is used to model leisure activity participation. The results show that the reference thermal environment, in general, corresponds to the historical mean of the thermal environment. Moreover, the effect of subjective weather perception on leisure activity participation is non-linear and asymmetric. Only 'very disappointed weather' and 'very satisfied weather' significantly influence leisure activity participation. The intra-individual heterogeneity in the effect of 'very good weather' has a smaller magnitude than that of 'very bad weather'.
