Thank you.  My label for category is too long to put in one line over each
graph.  Is there any way to appear in two lines?

For example, 

Category 1 = Mining/Quarrying/Oil&Gas
Extraction/Utilities/Construction/Manufacturing

Label your values.  See -help label-.


******************!
clear
inp x y category
10 25 1
12 10 2
15 5 3
10 20 1
11 33 2
14 12 3
20 20 1
end

**label values**
lab def ll 1 "my category A" 2 "my category B" 3 "my category C", modify
lab val category ll
ta category
la li

**Also, note the difference between labels of the "by" categories and
titles:
scatter y x, by(category, rows(1))   ///
       title("{bf:TITLE GOES HERE}" "{stSerif:-Subtitle here-}" "{it:3
{sup:rd} line here}")
