That's true; the contrast postestimation command will use a t after regress/ANOVA but a z after xtmixed. On the other hand, the compound symmetric covariance for regress/ANOVA may not be a good choice, and the univariate corrections for departure from the sphericity assumption are approximate. Also, with other than designed experiments, missing time points are likely, and regress/ANOVA does casewise deletion whereas xtmixed will retain cases missing one time point.

> One more thing - if you can "get away with" the assumptions for ANOVA and everything is balanced, it should provide closer to nominal test levels than -xtmixed- because of the finite degrees of freedom for error in the former vs. asymptotic Z- statistics in the latter.
