Following is a response from DHS staff member Tom Pullum:

The Stata code pasted below matches table 10.1 for the categories of v101 (which is the same as v024):

* construct table 10.1 in the report on the Pakistan 20117-18 survey
use "...PKKR71FL.DTA", clear

label list M18
gen size=.
replace size=1 if m18==5
replace size=2 if m18==4
replace size=3 if m18<=3
replace size=4 if m18==8 | m18==.
label define size 1 "very small" 2 "< average" 3 "average + " 4 "DK/missing"
label values size size
tab v101 size [iweight=v005/1000000], row

label list M19
gen weight_measured=0
replace weight_measured=1 if m19<9996
label define noyes 0 "No" 2 "Yes"
label values weight_measured noyes
tab v101 weight_measured [iweight=v005/1000000], row

gen low_birth_wt=0 if weight_measured==1
replace low_birth_wt=1 if weight_measured==1 & m19<2500
label values low_birth_wt noyes
tab v101 low_birth_wt [iweight=v005/1000000], row
