    Try entering 1980s in the serach window, dozens of sites came up for me.

    I have included just a few below.

    The first site is about fashion, although the article goes into other things as well. The second site hits each year in the decade.

    The third site offers lots of information also such as these tidbits:

    FACTS about this decade.

    Population: 226,546,000

    National Debt: 1980 - $914,000,000,000

    National Debt: 1986 - $2,000,000,000,000

    Average salary: $15,757

    Life Expectancy: Male 69.9 Female 77.6

    Minimum Wage: $3.10

    BMW was $12,000; Mercedes 280 E was $14,800

    Attendance: Movies 20 million/week

    These should get you started.
