```Hi Diana,

I think the following lines will do what you intend

In[20]:=
Clear[PurgeData]

In[21]:=
PurgeData[data_, range_:6, requiredIncidence_:3] :=
Select[data,
Function[lst,
Min[
Map[Length[Cases[lst, #1]] &, Range[range]
] >= requiredIncidence]
]

Then

PurgeData[YourArray] will return the purged array.

Regards,
Sasha
