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

The urban rural parts of the regions are the strata. Small strata have been over-sampled and there should be enough cases for satisfactory estimates in each stratum. We recommend that you always use weights (v005 in the women's file) for population estimates, regardless of what subpopulation you are working with. We can provide support for Stata but not for other packages. If you are using Stata, please look at Stata help for weights, especially pweights. The help for each estimation command describes how to use weights. Let us know if you are not sure how to specify the weights.
