Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

77,313 is the weighted number of de facto residents (those with hv103=1) in the PR file.

If you are using Stata, open the PR file and paste the following command: tab hv103 [iweight=hv005/1000000] .

You will get 77,312.719 weighted cases with hv103=1, which rounds to the integer 77,313.
