How would you represent a variable with values of 1 or 0 in a multiple regression using the StepwiseMulReg class? If I set the value to 0, then the entire set of observations is thrown out. Along the same lines, if a value really is zero (say a percentage) then how would you be able to include it in the regression.

Is there something I'm missing?

We aren't exactly sure what you mean.

Are you saying that you have an independent variable, that has a value of either 0, or 1 (no fractions)? And when you run a stepwise regression the variable is always deemed insignificant and left out of the final equation?

Is the binary variable significant? How do you know? If you run a standard multiple regression (NOT stepwise) on the data, including all variables, what is the F-STAT value for the binary independent variable.
