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

Here is the Stata code to construct wealth quintiles as "hv270_test", which you can compare with hv270. This can be applied to any HR file. (HR, not PR.) It should be easy enough to translate into R.

use "xxHRxxFL.DTA" , clear
keep hv001 hv002 hv005 hv012 hv013 hv270 hv271
gen mem = hv012
replace mem = hv013 if mem == 0
gen pwt=mem*hv005
gen wt=pwt/1000000
xtile hv270_test=hv271 [pweight=pwt], nquantiles(5)
tab hv270 hv270_test [iweight=wt]
