Each of the individual variables must be normally distributed. 2. Any linear combination of the variables must be normally distributed. 3. , every pairwise combination) must have a multivariate normal distribution (this is known as bivariate normality). Bivariate normality implies that the scatterplots for each pair of variables will be elliptical. An initial check for multivariate normality would consist of an examination of all bivariate scatterplots to check that they are approximately elliptical (Stevens, 2001).
