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

The youth surveys in Indonesia are indeed "special" surveys and they have their limitations. I believe that about half of the unmarried women and men age 15-24 come from the standard survey in the same year and about half come from other households in the same clusters. For the first half, you can get hv270 from the standard survey, matching qhclust and qhnumber in the OD file with the cluster number (hv001 or hv021) and household number (hv002) in the main PR file (you can restrict to cases with hv101=1, to have one record per household). For the second half, you do not have the variables that were used to construct the wealth quintiles. You are not just missing hv270, you are missing a lot of other potentially useful information about the household. You may be able to construct something similar to hv270 for those households, but you simply cannot construct hv270.
