How do I get strings to be untouched

I try to print this in a time series graph however it makes a number out of the 2013-1 => 2012 and the rest similarly. How do I avoid that?

[[2013-1, 0.39], [2013-2, 0.27], [2013-3, 0.60],[2013-4, 0.75],[2013-5, 0.6],[2013-6, 2],[2013-7, 5],[2013-8, 0.4],[2013-9, 15],[2013-10, 0.22],[2013-11, 0.36],[2013-12, 0.10]];

Strings are delimited by quote marks. If you want 2013-1 to be a string instead of 2013 minus 1 = 2012, you must enclose it in quote marks. Single or double, doesn't matter in this case.
[['2013-1', 0.39], ['2013-2', 0.27], ['2013-3', 0.60],['2013-4', 0.75],['2013-5', 0.6],['2013-6', 2],['2013-7', 5],['2013-8', 0.4],['2013-9', 15],['2013-10', 0.22],['2013-11', 0.36],['2013-12', 0.10]];
