Thank you.

. lrtest, using (1)

observations differ: 2098 vs. 2216
r(498);
I think it probably means that the samples used for your 2 models are not the same. Perhaps adding some variables caused some cases to drop out? If so, a possible solution might be something like

logit y x1 x2 x3 x4
estimates store model1
logit y x1 x2 if e(sample)
estimates store model2

That is, run the model with the most missing cases first, and then restrict the subsequent models to those cases.
