```Why does pwcompare give different results after anova and xtmixed? Using the following syntax:
xtmixed lhist i.group##i.time || dog:, reml cov(id)
or
anova lhist group / dog|group time time#group, repeated(time)
followed by
pwcompare group, emptycells(reweigh) eff asbalanced post

I get the following for xtmixed

I can see that the standard errors are different, but the question arises should I use xtmixed or anova for repeated measures?

I am using Stata 12.0, update 10 Nov 2011.

Thanks,
