Here is one way. There are many others:
> dat <- data.frame( # slightly less trivial example
basel_asset_class=c(4,8,8,8,74,3,74),
defa_frequency=(1:7)/8)
> count_by_class <- with(dat, ave(numeric(length(basel_asset_class)), basel_asset_class, FUN=length))
> cbind(dat, count_by_class) # see what we just computed
basel_asset_class defa_frequency count_by_class
1 4 0.125 1
2 8 0.250 3
3 8 0.375 3
4 8 0.500 3
5 74 0.625 2
6 3 0.750 1
7 74 0.875 2
> mydat[count_by_class>1, ] # I think this is what you are asking for
basel_asset_class defa_frequency
2 8 0.250
3 8 0.375
4 8 0.500
5 74 0.625
7 74 0.875
