In 2011, there were over 25,000 residency positions filled by 4,200 IMGs.
There were over 10,000 IMG applicant, so the percentage got into residency was a little over 42%.

There are no official news or regulations that are planning to decrease the number of residency positions.

In fact the number of residency positions have been on the rise consistently during the last five years.

All my info comes from this official NRMP data here
