Much is singular,therefore the sentence should be "is corrupted"

GBM

You could use many of the data/are corrupted

Rupam Mitra

Data is plural, hence I think are is used correctly.

Will

Rupam, you cannot be suggesting that 'much' is plural, can you? If you are, you are wrong.

TimB

Will is right. Rupam is wrong.

Parisse

The issue here is with ''Much''
I think it should be ''Most''... and also ''data are'' is quite awkward
''Most of the data we need is corrupted'' sound simpler!
