Following is a response from Senior DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

In the Stata lines I gave, "by(hv024)" is the syntax for getting the prevalence of stunting, etc., within each category of hv024, which is "region", usually the first administrative level of a country. In India, hv024 is states. The original question was about India and the NFHS-5. In Pakistan hv024 is provinces. The syntax works for any other variable, such as wealth quintiles, education levels, etc.
