Excuse my ignorance, but if you're talking about the drop-down features, I did try
those. The issue I'm having with those is I'd like to be able to script all of
this in an attempt to create an automated "report creator", if you will, using
LaTeX. This data is going to be updated fairly frequently, and I don't really want to
have to run 100+ graphs by hand (using the drop down features) every time the data
changes; having a boiler plate script that could be run would be ideal. Thanks for your
time on this, Allin. I really do appreciate it.

For example, when I load the data into gretl, it recognizes the panel

set to say two counties and graph them (using "gnuplot
County1 County2 -time-series -with-lines") the data are plotted on a
graph with an x-axis scale from 1-51 instead of 1990 - 2040.
How can I get it to recognize the data as that will create x-axis
labels in -time-series graphs automatically with the respective dates
rather than the periods 1 - 51?
I should have asked: have you tried playing with "Panel Plot" in the GUI?
It's available via the right-click menu when you select a single series in the main
window. If there's a variable named "year"
or "period" in the dataset (on a case-insensitive comparison), and it appears to
be suitable to the purpose, it is used for the x-axis on the time-series plot options
"single graph: group means", "single graph: groups overlaid" and
"multiple plots arranged vertically".
