I am trying to estimate the effect of both a rating scale and a set of accounting ratios to the risk factor. I am hypothesizing that the effect of the rating on the interest rate, compared to the effect of the accounting ratios on this interest rate has diminished in recent years, using data from three points in time during the last decade.

Sheaf coefficients were originally developed by Heise (1972) to
compare the relative influence of blocks of variables, so what you
propose fits within that tradition.
