Default Increasing number of AMGs and DOs applying for IM and FM

I have heard that number of American graduates are increasing this year and a lot of American MDs and DOs are interviewing at programs which were traditionally filled just by IMGs. Also more American graduates are applying for internal medicine and family medicine because of decreased interest in specialties like radiology,pathology. Is this true?

According to preliminary ERAS data for this season (2016) this is completely false. The percent increase for AMGs to FM and IM was more last year than this cycle. I banish these paranoid thoughts!

I am very curious to know from what source will I be able to get the preliminary ERAS data? If what you are saying is true, then why are IMGs not getting the expected number of interview calls?
I do seriously hope that my thoughts are paranoid!!! But I don't want to be delusional and not face the reality. I would really want to you share a link or data source supporting your claim
