I am trying to import data contained in a CSV file Chomage 1975.csv, with a CSVT file Chomage 1975.csvt in the same folder.

My CSV file content is:

Code;City Name;Unemployment rate 15 years and over 1975

and my CSVT file content is:


However, I keep getting this as field formats:

I have tried importing it as a delimited text layer, as a vector layer, and just dragging it but I keep getting the same result.

I am using QGIS 3.20.3 on Windows 10.

Am I doing something wrong?
