You can, if you really want to, use -xtmixed-.  Phil Enders
presentation at the West Coast Stata Users Group meeting in 2007 gives
an example of how to use -xtmixed- to estimate a RM-ANOVA.  Since
ANOVA is based on deviations from the grand mean -xi3- (available from
SSC) is needed to create effect coded variables.

A paired ttest is equivalent to a repeated measures ANOVA with two levels to the repeated factor. You can see the regression equivalent below.
```
webuse fuel, clear
list, clean
ttest mpg1 == mpg2
local t = r(t)
generate subject = _n
list, clean
reshape long mpg, i(subject) j(repeat)
list, clean
anova mpg repeat subject
anova, regress
test repeat
local F = r(F)
display `F' "=" `t'^2
xi: regress mpg i.repeat i.subject

```Dear Statalisters:
```
I am not sure whether it makes sense or not, but is there a sort of -regress- command that allows to conduct a pair-matched - ttest-, but with other independent variables?
```I tried using -xtmixed-, but the result is not the same.
A contrived data set could be:
matching_identification  outcome ocasion variable_not_matched
1            1                1                0
1            2                2                0
2            3                1                0
2            5                2                1
3            2                1                0
3            4                2                1
4            6                1                1
4            5                2                1
```
To perform the pair-matched ttest it is necessary to -reshape- and to use -ttest outcome1==outcome2-, losing the independent variable_not_matched.
```Thank for any orientation.
