You need to provide more information on the problem you are facing. Can you explain what your problem is?

The wealth index is already computed for this survey and can be found in variable hv270 in the household datasets, and in variable v190 for the datasets based on the individual questionnaire.

See also http://www.dhsprogram.com/topics/wealth-index/Wealth-Index-C onstruction.cfm for more information on specifically how it is calculated for this survey.
