Perhaps -sex- is a string variable in your data. 

(P.S. look at http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/techsup/sendout.html to
see the kinds of things to report.)

I encounter the following while doing a univariate logistic regression:

. logistic mors_30 sex
no observations
no observations
r(2000);

. tab sex

        sex |      Freq.     Percent        Cum.
------------+-----------------------------------
          1 |      1,275       48.48       48.48
          2 |      1,355       51.52      100.00
------------+-----------------------------------
      Total |      2,630      100.00

. tab mors_30 sex

           |          sex
   mors_30 |         1          2 |     Total
-----------+----------------------+----------
         0 |     1,245      1,325 |     2,570
         1 |        30         30 |        60
-----------+----------------------+----------
     Total |     1,275      1,355 |     2,630


. logit mors_30 sex
no observations
r(2000);

Other variables work beautifully.
