We report on numerical studies of two-dimensional electron systems in the presence of a perpendicular magnetic field, with a high Landau level (index N≥2) half filled by electrons. Strong and sharp peaks are found in the wave-vector dependence of both the static density susceptibility and the equal-time density-density correlation function, in finite-size systems with up to twelve electrons. Qualitatively different from the partially filled lowest (N=0) Landau level, these results are suggestive of a tendency toward charge-density-wave ordering in these systems. The ordering wave vector is found to decrease with increasing N.
