Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

DHS surveys include an index of relative wealth or assets called the wealth index. Wealth quintiles are given by hv270 in the HR and PR files, v190 in the IR, BR, and KR files, and mv190 in the MR file. If you look at the DHS website, or the main report on the NFHS-4, you will find information about how the wealth quintiles are constructed.
