But data from the OECD, a club of mostly rich countries, suggest that even after accounting for Britain's low unemployment rate, for years it has been a stingy spender on "active" larbour-market policies.

is its structure that "data suggests that it has been a stingy spender"?

    Yes, data is the head noun. The verb is suggest. Data is traditionally plural, hence the plural verb suggest (not suggests).
