So far, for the 2017/18 migration year (ends June 30), over 8 thousand nominations have been issued. 3519 nominations for regional areas have been issued so far this year. In comparison with the 190 nominations, this is quite a large number too. If you are willing to work and live in a regional area, perhaps the 489 visa may suit you better than the 190 visa.

The NSW Department of Industry has advised the MIA that they have recently begun issuing invitations for the 190 State Nomination visa. While the rate of nominations since July has been limited, NSW anticipates nominating another 4,000 skilled candidates for the 190 visa in 2015-16 with a ramp up of invitations in the coming months. The MIA will continue to liaise with NSW Department of Industry and provide further updates on the 190 nominations program when available.
Further information about visa options for migration to NSW is available on the NSW Department of Industry website.
