You can do it dynamically if you have lot of states.
 
 declare @select varchar(max)
select @select = STUFF((select distinct ',' + quotename(StateName, '')
from States
for XML PATH('')
),1,1,'' )

select @select = 'select *
  from (
		select s1.SpecialtyID,s2.StateName
		  from Specialties s1
		  join States s2 on s1.StateID = s2.StateID) t1
 pivot (count(StateName) for StateName in ('+@select+')) p'
 exec(@select)

Open in new window
