BEC高级真题短语解析:"Catchment population"

Catchment population:A flow of people gather towards a specified location (catchment area). (流经人口)

例句:A further attraction of Wakefield for Paragon is the ready availability of a skilled workfoce. There are more than 233,000 people available for work within an hour’s journey, and an enormous catchment population of 20 million within two hours’ travel. { 例句出处:《剑桥BEC高级真题集第三辑:P26》}


关于“Catchment population”个人认为比较准确的网友解析:

Some place, perhaps an industrial zone or factory district—has access to 233,000 possible workers who could get there within a one-hour journey. The area occupied by everyone who lives within an hour’s travel of the point in question is its primary “catchment area,” so the people in that area are its “catchment population.” Extending the travel time to two hours increases the area to one in which 20 million workers live.
