QGIS can also read the types from an OGR CSV driver compatible "csvt" file.
This is a file alongside the data file, but with a "t" appended to the file name.
The file should just contain one line which lists the type of each field.
Valid types are "integer", "real", "string", "date", "time", and "datetime". The date, time, and datetime types are treated as strings in QGIS.
Valid types are "integer", "long", "longlong", "real",
"string", "date", "time", and "datetime".
The date, time, and datetime types are treated as strings by the delimited text provider.
Each type may be followed by a width and precision, for example "real(10.4)".
The list of types are separated by commas, regardless of the delimiter used in the data file. An
example of a valid format file would be:

Each attribute also has a data type, one of string (text), integer, or real number.
Each attribute also has a data type, one of string (text), integer, longlong,

The data type is inferred from the content of the fields - if every non blank value
is a valid integer then the type is integer, otherwise if it is a valid real
is a valid integer then the type is integer, otherwise if it is a valid long long
nubmer then the type is longlong, otherwise if it is a valid real
number then the type is real, otherwise the type is string. Note that this is
based on the content of the fields - quoting fields does not change the way they
are interpreted.
