Why are there so few DOs in Michigan Allopathic Residencies

I'm looking at residency programs in Michigan (I'm from Michigan, but attending medical school out of state... I haven't lived in Michigan in 10+ years, but I'm considering moving back) and a see a severe lack of osteopathic graduates in allopathic residencies in Michigan. Is it because there are so many osteopathic residencies that most DOs forgo the allopathic match for the "safer" DO match? Is Michigan, in general, anti-DOs in allopathic programs? I've stumbled across many programs with 50% or more IMGs, but zero DOs. Someone help me understand!

Yeah, I'm kind of jealous my home state does not have as many DO residency slots...Michigan has developed GME and residency programs very successfully! If only states with bigger cities or suburbs followed instead of the random new rural programs AOA makes. Wouldn't you want training in a bigger place with more pathology? I get that they are trying to recruit doctors to those areas but still..
