AIC and BIC values given by -glm- estimation adjust the log-likelihood and
penalty term by the number of observations in the model.

Hope this helps,

Subject: st: choosing between two non nested models

I am trying to compare two models in stata. They are non-nested and the
number of observations are not same for both models. 
I have tried "nnest" command but I assume that it works only if number of
observations are same for both models. Is it true? It says "factor variables
and time-series operators not allowed, r(101)" 
Can anyone tell me how can I compare both models? Is there any other test
except J/Cox test?
