What you do seems to me to be the traditional Fama-MacBeth procedure
which is often applied in empirical finance. Daniel Hoechle recently
posted an -xtfmb- procedure which might be interesting for your
purpose. In Stata type -net search xtfmb-.

I hope this helps.

I very much appreciate the information, and I will keep that in mind. However, what i need to do in my current work is to take the three year average of OLS coefficients of the same regressor and find some standard error for that. My command of statistics is not great, so the answer might be simpler than you think.
