I am using R and I input data through excel files. I am able to read the excel files into R through xlsreadwrite package.
My query: is how to tell the sample period of the data.
For example, data in my file are annual and start from the year 1950 and go up to the year 2010.
the R, however, reads it as starting at 1 and ending at 60.
for example, when I do structural break, its shows break, say, for observation 30, but does not give the year per se. the same is true for plots etc.
Kindly let me know how to incorporate the sample period in the R.
