catchment area


Explanation:
Kim is right - catchment area is the term used in these contexts. However, it loses its literal meaning (rivers, etc.). And in your text, "Einzugsgebiet" has nothing to do with rivers, drainage, etc.

For example, you also speak of "catchment area" in connection with schools, public services, etc.
