Great, Martijn, the 'unit' parameter fixed the size issue. Thank you!

So are you suggesting that I hide the labels, set dx=5 and use \rput for the
0,5,10,15 labels on the x axis? I was hoping there would be an easier way.

\psset{unit=8mm, showpoints=false}
\begin{pspicture}(0,0)(17,9)

\psaxes[dx=5,linewidth=2pt,labels=none,ticks=x,tickstyle=bottom](17,7)
\psline[linestyle=dashed](0,0)(16,7)
\psline (5,0)(16,2)
\rput(0,-0.5){0}
\rput(5,-0.5){5}
\rput(10,-0.5){10}
\rput(15,-0.5){15}
\rput(16,-0.5){Years}
\rput(1,7.5){Number}
\end{pspicture}

The code above gives me the exact result I want. Is there an easier way to
achieve that look?
