This will work better if you want just one variable with both deciles in it - that is, you will have one variable that is "wealth decile" that will have different cut-offs for rural/urban:

egen wealth_decile = xtile(hv271), by(residence) nq(10)

This makes a bit more sense if you want to use the deciles as dummy variables in a regression context, because the code that you have will generate "missing" values for decile_urban for rural residents (and vice versa).

*Note: you may need to install the "egenmore" package - type "findit egenmore" in your stata terminal to get a link, or "ssc install egenmore" to directly install that.
