Fieldtype for numbers?

I want to store a number, on which I can use the modifier 'format_number', however I cant find any field type that stores numbers. Do I have to use a text field? That doesnt seem right.

If I use a text field, my data is stored as a string, and the modifier doesn't work. But then - when is that modifier ever useful?

What should I do?
