Abstract : In this note it is shown, by a counterexample, that the necessary and sufficient condition for equality in Anderson's theorem, given by Anderson (1955), is incorrect. A more general condition is given which is shown to be necessary and sufficient. This is applied to the multivariate normal distribution. (Author)
