My reading of Paticia's question is that she wants something more like this:

forval g=1/5 {

scatter y x if group==`g', by(state, cols(5)) name(g`g')

}

This should create five graphs, each containing 10 scatterplots, one state per plot.

If it doesn't matter which states go in which group, the groups might be set up by:

encode state, gen(istate) // istate is 1..50

gen byte group=(istate+9)/10 // group is 1..5

Stata, like any other computer program, does what you tell it to do, not what you want it to do, and for good reason: How is Stata supposed to know which states you want to group together? So, first decide which states you want grouped together in one plot, than create a variable such that all the state you want to group together get the same value, call this variable group, than the syntax provided by Nick will do what you want.
