    Spatially inhomogeneous electron distribution around a single vortex is discussed on the basis of the Bogoliubov-de Gennes theory. The spatial structure and temperature dependence of the electron density around the vortex are presented. A relation between the vortex core charge and the vortex bound states (or the Caroli-de Gennes-Matricon states) is pointed out. Using the scanning tunneling microscope, information on the vortex core charge can be extracted through this relation.
