Indeed, life expectancy at birth has not increased by much in Hungary for a long time. The Central Statistical Office published data about the regional differences in Hungary and on one of their graphs the CSO writes about the differences in life expectancy.
According to the portfolio.hu, life expectancy at birth grew by a bit last year, which is already good news since the trend was negative in that issue during the previous years. Latest data show that the life expectancy at birth of women increased from 78.99 (2017) to 79.19 years while these numbers are 72.4 (2017) to 72.56 years in the case of men.

Based on one of the graphs of the CSO, it becomes clear that while between 1991 and 2018 the average growth of life expectancy at birth was 0.2 years each year, in the last five years, that pace slowed down to only 0.1 years. The CSO says that there are substantial regional differences in this regard in Hungary. In 2018, the span ranged between 70-74.5 years in the case of women and between 77.5 and 80.1 in the case of men. Regarding both sexes, numbers were
the highest in Budapest and Győr-Moson-Sopron county.
Meanwhile, men can expect only 70 years to live in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, but the situation is not much better in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and Heves counties. You can check the map and find further details in the article on portfolio.hu.
