Hi.According to the New York Times's book on Style & Usage, it is perfectly correct for the apostrophe's position there. The Oxford English Dictionary says the same, and they're the authority on all things English-language. Although overall, I think the use of 1980s is preferable, just in occasions of clarity, 1980's can be used.Out and over.
