Another alternative way around the problem would be...

foreach x in `="${out_`year'}"' {

Personally I still prefer the -foreach x of global g-, which also runs quicker than -foreach x in $g-.

woops, I forgot about that requirement.  You can also put the global into a 
local before using it (which may be helpful in other situations):

local outyear ${out_`year'}
foreach x in `outyear' {
