Aguila first appeared on the 1920 U.S. Census as the 52nd Precinct of Maricopa County.[4] In 1930, it simply appeared as the Aguila Precinct. It was recorded as having a Spanish/Hispanic majority for that census[5] (the census would not separately feature that racial demographic again until 1980). With the combination of all county precincts into three districts in 1940, it did not formally appear again until 2010, when it was made a census-designated place (CDP).[6]

As of the census[7] of 2010, there were 798 people living in the CDP. The population density was 508.1 people per square mile. The racial makeup of the CDP was 64.66% White, 1.00% Black or African American, 3.63% Native American, 0.38% Asian, 0.25% Pacific Islander, 28.07% from other races, and 2.01% from two or more races. 69.42% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race.

Climate[edit]

This area has a large amount of sunshine year round due to its stable descending air and high pressure. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Aguila has a desert climate, abbreviated "Bwh" on climate maps.[8]
