A television news story claimed that half of all U.S. adults have health issues. In a national poll about health issues (CDC Project), 12,638 U.S. adults were surveyed and it was found that 6413 of those surveyed had health issues. At a 5% level of significance, perform a hypothesis test to test the claim made by the television news story. What is the correct conclusion? I get a Z Score of 0 not sure where to proceed from there

You have not specified whether this is a onetail or twotail test. For a onetail test you should get $\displaystyle p=0.047$. The twotail test is double that. Are you sure you have the right formula? $\displaystyle z=\dfrac{\widehat{p}p}{\sqrt{\dfrac{pq}{n}}}$
