Another approach (there are many) is to use commands likeThanks so much, Richard. I will try this. :)

. gen touse = !missing(y, x1, x2, x3, x4)

. logit y x1 x2 if touse

That is, you create a variable, e.g. touse, which is coded 1 for the cases you want to analyze and 0 otherwise. In this case, you are restricting your analysis to cases with complete data on y, x1, x2, x3 and x4. You can also make the selection more complicated if you need to, e.g. limit it to females with nonmissing data.

The above approach, of course, assumes that you want to do listwise deletion of missing data. That is probably the most common strategy, but there are others, e.g. impute values for the missing data.

Finally, there is a -force- option on the -lrtest- command that might make your original error go away, but you probably don't want to use it, i.e. it probably won't give you the right results.
