[R] r equivalent of egen? Not tapply

I have a list that has about 50 elements, each repeated many times (a list of states by observation). I want to create a vector with the same length with the same value repeated over and over again within states. The value I want is the number of observations that are in the same state as each observation.
In stata, this is simply egen statesum = count(state), by(state). What is the r equivalent? tapply just gives me 50 observations. No luck yet trying apply, lapply, etc.
