Following is another response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:


The missing piece of information is the number of households in the EA (cluster) found during the household listing. We do not have that, and we do not have the number of households in the EA given in the sampling frame. (The probability of selection for the EA is proportional to that number.) This information is destroyed after the weights have been calculated, as part of DHS efforts to prevent identification of the EAS in the sample.
