In 2012 researchers at Yale University School of Public Health in New Haven, CT analyzed their data on smoking cessation along with data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. This analysis was published in THE JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION. They reported that since the 1964 report by the Surgeon General identifying the dangers of smoking, the rate of smoking fell from 42% in 1964 to 18% in 2012. They estimated that the antismoking effort engendered by the report had saved eight million lives at that time.
