Endemic: n. a subset(s) existing and frequently being common in a set

Endemic is frequently used to describe a species common yet limited to a given area or territory and to describe a disease either limited to or common to a human population or an area. Sickle cell anemia is endemic to certain African tribes and the alligator is endemic to the southeastern United States. Violence is endemic to some motorcycle gangs and praying is endemic to many religions. Electric motors are endemic to many moving appliances. 

Any subset can be said to be endemic to a set that it belongs to or is a part of.
