Following is a response from DHS Senior Sampling Specialist, Mahmoud Elkasabi:

It is true that the average size of EAs was not provided in the final report of the 2017-18 Pakistan DHS. Fortunately, such information is available, even on the block level, on the website of Pakistan Bureau of Statistics. You will need to compile the district-level numbers of households to produce the number of households by state. This distribution along with the distribution of the EBs in A.1 can be used to produce the average size per each state.
