Assumptions for the population The mean of the population of the dependent variable at a given value of the independent variable increases (or decreases) linearly as the independent variable increases. For any given value of the independent variable, the possible values of the dependent variable are distributed normally The standard deviation of population of the dependent variable about its mean at any given value of the independent variable is the same for all values of the independent variable.
