Aztec first appeared on the 1920 U.S. Census as the Aztec Precinct of Yuma County.[6] It appeared again in 1930, and recorded having a Spanish/Hispanic majority[7] (the census would not separately feature that racial demographic again until 1980). With the combination of all county precincts into 3 districts in 1940, it did not formally appear again until 2010, when it was made a census-designated place (CDP).
