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.
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.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980s_in_fashio http://www.1980sflashback.com/ http://kclibrary.nhmccd.edu/decade80.html
