Yes and no.
unsigned, like short, is not, strictly, a data type in its own right.
But in a declaration that names only one or more of these `adjectival'
type keywords and no `base' type keyword, "int" is implicitly supplied.
So "unsigned foo;" does indeed declare foo with a well-defined type,
namely, unsigned int.
