  • Double sorted portfolio - Error Estimation

    I have to make a double sorted portfolio analysis.
    First I need to regress a simple linear model with 4 independent variables, and find the error term.
    I need to do this for around 100 persons in a sample, in a quarterly time span for 6 years.

    From the error term I should then estimate the standard deviation.

    Then I need to categorize the standard deviations of the error terms into four portfolios, from low to high.
    How could I estimate the error for all persons at every different time all at once?

    The data that I use is in Excel and looks like this:
    Dates Name Variable1 Variable2 ... etc
